           Summary: tar task does not add entries for folders
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: marius.scurtescu@gmail.com


I noticed a subtle difference between Gnu Tar and the tar task.

If you are tarring a folder structure with Gnu Tar then entries for all folders
will be created separately. The Ant tar task does not add the folders as
separate entries, unless you explicitly specify them.

In most cases this is not an issue, since applications extracting files from tar
archives will create the necessary folders. But not in all cases. Some
applications will fail because they expect the folders to be listed first, and
created.
