Comment 1 Peter Vrabec 2007-02-02 04:46:22 EST
yeah, I know 1.15-1 is old.

I work on 1.16-1 upgrade.
http://people.redhat.com/pvrabec/rpms/tar-1.16.1-1.src.rpm
(it needs some spec file fixes like autoreconf in prep stage)

But we need to make sure 1.16-1 works with anaconda. And I got this response 
from anaconda maintainer(fenlason@redhat.com) 
"I seet a potential problem: there are no entries for directories in
the generated archive, so anyone attempting to restore will have to
reset permissions and ownership by hand. This is bad. . ."
Comment 2 Peter Vrabec 2007-02-07 04:46:56 EST
there is a upgrade candidate, which fix the problem in comment #1.

changelog tar-1.17 2007-06-08:

    *  Fix archivation of sparse files in posix mode. Previous versions padded
sparse members with spurious zero blocks.
    * Fix operation of --verify --listed-incremental. Version 1.16.1 produced a
full dump when both options were given.
    * Fix --occurence. In previous versions it continued scanning the archive
even though all requested members has already been extracted.
    * Scope of --transform and --strip-components options.

      In addition to affecting regular archive members, the --transform option
affects hard and symbolic link targets and the --strip-components option affects
hard link targets as well.
    * End-of-volume script can send the new volume name to tar by writing it to
the file descriptor stored in the environment variable TAR_FD (instead of
hard-coded descriptor number used in previous versions).

* Licensed under the GPLv3

* Fixed several bugs in the testsuite
Comment 5 Radek Brich 2007-07-02 04:48:51 EDT
1.17 now built in devel

I hope it won't break other packages. Issue from comment #1 seems to be resolved
and I also created patch for wildcards bug #206841.

In 1.18, there really are no significant changes, just the GPLv3 thing.
