Subject [jira] Created: (COMPRESS-121) Add support for different tar dialects
Date Tue, 26 Oct 2010 10:07:22 GMT
Add support for different tar dialects
--------------------------------------

                 Key: COMPRESS-121
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-121
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.1, 1.0
            Reporter: Stefan Bodewig
            Priority: Minor


Right now the tar classes handle ustar and oldgnu (and to a certain degree pax) but there
are way more dialects out there.  In particular we should support the POSIX format.

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=25704 in Ant's bug tracker contains code
that is supposed to support the Solaris variant (of 2003).

So far I've only seen people ask for POSIX but not contributing patches.
