Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-66) Add tar.gz format for source releases
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 06:20:07 GMT


Matthias Friedrich commented on CRUNCH-66:

Yep, it creates a tar file identical to the ZIP, and even the permissions for the scrunch
script are correct. The reason why I chose ZIP originally was that our file names are longer
than 100 characters which is beyond what the original tar format supports. Some tar implementations
can read it, others can't (GNU tar probably can). The assembly plugin warns about this, you
can set tarLongFileMode but I have no idea what the consequences are for non-GNU tars if you
set it to "gnu".

Anyway, we definitely want to be part of Bigtop, so +1 :)

> The Bigtop folks assume tar.gz-based source files for all of their packaging tools, so
we should add tar.gz as a format for our release assembly in order to play nicely with the
other projects.
