Subject [jira] [Updated] (COMPRESS-338) fill some gaps in tar implementation
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2016 19:57:25 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-338?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Stefan Bodewig updated COMPRESS-338:
------------------------------------
    Description: 
The test archive linked to in COMPRESS-336 shows our tar code isn't completely on par with
the python lib that uses it for its tests:

* -we don't seem to identify all kinds of links (./ustar/linktest2/symtype -> ../linktest1/regtype
is identified as two entries, as is ./ustar/linktest2/lnktype link to ./ustar/linktest1/regtype)-
* we only seem to parse gnu/sparse-0.0 properly, not 0.1 or 1.0
* {{Lister}} shows parts of the Pax-Headers as extra entries for the pax/ headers (further
investigation shows, these are global PAX headers)
* I'm not sure about the non-ASCII characters in a bunch of file names

It is probably best to pick the issues independently as subtasks of this.
