We would like to take a look at the source code of your project. Please tell
us a URL where it can be found, or email-us us a tarball.

Please register your project again, with a pointer to the source code. Since
the GNU project already has a compression/decompression program (gzip), you
should also explain why you think another one is needed; in which way do you
plan to improve gzip? and why do you feel the need to start a new GNU project
rather than contributing to the improvement of gzip?
