and the reason we (QA) want it added to Fedora is so we can use it in
the distribution of Fedora...

(we want to use it to allow people to reduce the size of nightly live
image downloads).

The point is that the initial meeting specified that neither rsync nor
zsync would be allowed to use an internal copy of zlib. Yet rsync is
still using one, zsync is still apparently not allowed in, and no-one
wants to do anything about it but argue.
