Subject Tar Task Does Not Tar Empty Directories
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 19:20:21 GMT
Hi all,

I'm getting files and directories out of SVN with SvnAnt.  Some of the directories are empty.
 Then I'm using the <tar> task to put them into tar files.  I would like the empty directories
to be in the tar file, but I can't get the <tar> task to include them.  Here is my tar

    <target name="tar">
        <patternset id="ksh.file">
            <include name="**/*.ksh" />
        <patternset id="other.file">
            <exclude name="**/*.ksh" />
        <tar destfile="mytarfile.tar">
            <tarfileset dir="${my.dir}" prefix="app" filemode="${ksh.file.perm}" dirmode="${dir.perm}">
                <patternset refid="ksh.file" />
            <tarfileset dir="${my.dir}" prefix="app" filemode="${other.file.perm}" dirmode="${dir.perm}">
                <patternset refid="other.file" />

I've tried using a number of different patterns, including **/*, **/**, and **/.  I've also
tried directory sets in my <tar> task.
