[pve-devel] PATCH pve-zsync compress option for gz-compressed sync transfers

Hi,
first of all, sorry for the late reply.

It seems that long lines got warped and the patch therefore does not 
apply. Please use 'git format-patch' and/or 'git send-email'.

Is there a specific reason why you opted for gzip with the default 
options instead of e.g. zstd?

ZFS itself can produce compressed streams if the datasets are 
compressed, and if we ever add that in the future, the option names 
might get confusing. Maybe there's a more descriptive name than just 
'compress'?

One more comment inline:

This check should only be executed if the compress option is set.
