Subject [jira] [Created] (COMPRESS-419) Make output format of tar configurable
Date Sun, 23 Jul 2017 15:20:00 GMT
Stefan Bodewig created COMPRESS-419:

             Summary: Make output format of tar configurable
                 Key: COMPRESS-419
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.14
            Reporter: Stefan Bodewig

Created as a follow up to COMPRESS-398.

Currently the tar package always generated "old ustar" archives that we augment with some
extra magic when writing long file names or adding PAX extended headers.

It may be useful to be able to create GNU tar or POSIX archives rather than "old ustar" right
from the start.
