Bug Description

## Package Information

Description: Ubuntu 12.10
Release: 12.10
gzip/quantal uptodate 1.5-1.1ubuntu1

## Bug Description

`man 1 gzip` does not contain any information about the `--rsyncable` option. However, the output of `gzip -h` explains the option as follows:

    --rsyncable Make rsync-friendly archive

The option should be documented in the man page.

Thanks for reporting this. This was fixed back in gzip version 1.6-1, and the oldest version of gzip in a supported version of Ubuntu is 1.6-3ubuntu1. Closing!
