The current version of minizip is from 2017 and is lacking changes needed by chromium.

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  @MarsSeed "Bogus / irrelevant task. core/zlib and core/minizip come from the active zlib project, whereas extra/minizip-ng is from a separate 'zlib-ng' project."

Attention: Original zlib and minizip are always in development and there are zlib-ng and minizip-ng in more.

zlib and minizip:
- https://zlib.net/
- https://github.com/madler/zlib
- https://github.com/madler/zlib/tree/master/contrib/minizip
- https://github.com/madler/zlib/tree/develop
- https://github.com/madler/zlib/tree/develop/contrib/minizip

zlib-ng and minizip-ng:
- https://github.com/zlib-ng/zlib-ng
- https://github.com/zlib-ng/minizip-ng

It is needed to have different packages.

Just saw: zlib-ng is now deleted from AUR because it is in [extra] repository.
