Hello,
Man page states that : "gzip normally preserves the mode, ownership and tim=
e stamps of files when compressing or decompressing".

Yet, the real behavior is that it creates file with the ownership of the cu=
rrent user that runs gzip (which is the genuine behavior for creating files=
). May be you could adjust the man to clarify this point ?


Regards,
Sebastien
