Have you considered the possibility of maintaining a port? Ports for systems very different from the original help to maintain the upstream source clean and simple.Do you mean maintaining local patches? If so, that is a possibility, but I would like to push changes upstream if possible.
I would very much prefer to keep upstream code clean. Also, as I do not use windows, it will become a burden for me to guarantee that win32 compilation is tested on all future code changes once it is officially included in the main lzip distribution.
If you or someone else writes and maintains a separate port, I will be happy to link it from the lzip home page.
I am relying on the test suite to tell me if lzip is actually working, any chance of adding a testsuite for lziprecover?
Lziprecover is already tested by "make check". See testsuite/check.sh, line 65.
