Package: rpm
Version: 4.14.0+dfsg1-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

RPM v4.14 introduces support for packages compressed with zstd, and distributions are
starting to consider/use it. However, for Debian to be able to be useful for building
packages targeting these distributions, RPM needs to have zstd support enabled.

Please enable zstd support so that packages using zstd will work on Debian.

Thanks in advance.
