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
             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. 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.
