Re: Linux Kernel Source Compression

just wanted to remark that I never liked that bzip was replaced by bzip2 (were there license issues?) since bzip's compression was/is often stronger:

39843104 Mar 28 09:33 linux-
39423739 Mar 28 09:33

Not a big difference in this case but still a step back. I for once am keeping my bzip binary.. does anyone know where the source can still be found?
