I thought it lived on sourceware.org once upon a time.  Unfortunately at
the moment the version is at 1.0.2 on sourceware and the most current
version is 1.0.6.

Your idea in the thread is good but someone already squats on bzip2.org
and register.com has parked bzip.org on a search page of links to
similar software.

You mentioned github in the thread and I see that Enthought has a fork
that is 5 years old of 1.0.6, I assume because their using it somewhere.
 There's one issue that is 3 years old with no response to it
complaining about bzdiff leaving empty files in /tmp.
