Bug Description

This patch (unfortunately not yet upstream acepted) is needed on top of LP 1825350 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gzip/+bug/1825350), and fixes a serious bug.

It was already developed and published a while ago:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gzip/2019-07/msg00000.html

This patch fixes data corruption issues, and thus is very important. Unfortunately, so far it has been ignored (there is not much going on on gzip mailing list in general). I would like to ask you to pick it up for the distro.
