[Bug 257063] archivers/star: Do not install 'gnutar' for it is broken
Date: Fri, 09 Jul 2021 14:12:00 UTC
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257063 --- Comment #7 from email@example.com --- (In reply to Jörg Schilling from comment #6) Just to be pedantic, the command line used is "/usr/local/bin/gnutar --exclude=precomplete --exclude=.mkdir.done -chf - ." (note *dash* chf), which GNU tar going back decades as well as libarchive tar accepts just fine. On a passingly related note, gnutar's man page claims to "emulate the GNU version of the tar archiver". What GNU tar does or does not do right or wrong is completely irrelevant. The claim is GNU tar emulation, not "this is the implementation GNU tar should have been". -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
