First thank you for your efforts on this feature. As Alan suggested on March 26, we should take a step back and flush out the overall changes to the API before moving forward with additional PR reviews.
We should look to see if it makes sense to use some of the more recent java features such as Record.
If we are adding a specific class to hold the header fields, perhaps using the builder pattern should be considered vs constructors.
If we are writing out these additional fields, what should we do with them when reading a gzip file back?
Have you looked at other gzip api implementations to see what they provide in this area?
Is there anyone who relies on this additional header info? As I mentioned in an earlier comment, we should validate the changes against another implementation to ensure that we can read the data back correctly and that the additional header data that we write can be read by other tools.
Once we reach a consensus on the overall API changes and/or additions, then we can look to move forward with the next PR review.
Alan, Yes I am happy to help Lin on moving this forward.
