  Can you publish gmp as gzip (tar.gz)? Linux kernel, mpfr, mpc, gcc,
  binutils, glibc etc. are available as tar.gz.
We considered gzip obsolete.  The oldest format we support is bzip2,
which compresses about 30% better than gzip, and is quite ubiquitous
since many years.  (The prefered formats today are lzip and xz, they are
another 20% better.)
