Description of problem:
# tar --help
says that --bzip2 is a valid option
# man tar
says that --bzip (note lack of '2') is a valid option
In actuality, both options work correctly.
The man page and the help message should be reconciled for consistency.

Steps to Reproduce:

I'm sorry. Even though u are right i won't fix it.
Both variants work correctly. It's just detail, which does not stand
Try report to upstream.
