bug#25636: new snapshot available: gzip-1.8.18-00e6

From: Jim Meyering
Subject: bug#25636: new snapshot available: gzip-1.8.18-00e6
Date: Mon, 06 Feb 2017 10:38:52 -0800

In the eight months since gzip-1.8 there have been some bug fixes, along
with many improvements via gnulib, so here's a snapshot of the latest.
Please test it and let us know how that goes.

** Bug fixes

  When converting time stamps to gzip file format (32-bit unsigned) or
  to time_t format (system-dependent), gzip now ignores out-of-range
  values instead of shoehorning them into the destination format,
  sometimes with undefined behavior.  This affects time stamps before
  1970 and after 2106, and time stamps after 2038 on platforms with
  32-bit signed time_t.  [bug present since the beginning]

  Support for VMS and Amiga has been removed.  It was not working anyway,
  and it reportedly caused file name glitches on MS-Windowsish platforms.

Changes in gzip since v1.8:

Jim Meyering (11):
      maint: post-release administrivia
      maint: arrange for better URLs in generated announcement message
      maint: fix gzip-specific syntax-check rule
      gnulib: update to latest
      maint: avoid unwarranted "make syntax-check" failure
      maint: update .gitignore files to ignore more generated files
      maint: use "returns_" rather than explicit comparison with "$?"
      maint: update gnulib and copyright dates for 2017
      maint: tweak a distcheck rule
      maint: change "time stamp" to "timestamp" globally
      gnulib: update to latest; and tests/init.sh and bootstrap

Paul Eggert (7):
      gzip: drop mentions of Amiga, VMS
      gzip: fix port to Atari by not defining ASMV
      gzip: fix some Y2038 etc. bugs
      * doc/gzip.texi: Fix off-by-one timestamp.
