GNU Tar is an archiver program. It is used to create and manipulate files
that are actually collections of many other files; the program provides
users with an organized and systematic method of controlling a large amount
of data. Despite its name, that is an acronym of "tape archiver", GNU Tar
is able to direct its output to any available devices, files or other programs,
it may as well access remote devices or files.

2019-03-15 - Cristian Rodríguez <crrodriguez@opensuse.org>
- Remove libattr-devel from buildrequires, tar no longer uses
it but finds xattr functions in libc.
2019-02-14 - kstreitova@suse.com
- update to version 1.31
* Fix heap-buffer-overrun with --one-top-level, bug introduced
with the addition of that option in 1.28
* Support for zstd compression
* New option '--zstd' instructs tar to use zstd as compression
program. When listing, extractng and comparing, zstd compressed
archives are recognized automatically. When '-a' option is in
effect, zstd compression is selected if the destination archive
name ends in '.zst' or '.tzst'.
* The -K option interacts properly with member names given in the
command line. Names of members to extract can be specified along
with the "-K NAME" option. In this case, tar will extract NAME
and those of named members that appear in the archive after it,
which is consistent with the semantics of the option. Previous
versions of tar extracted NAME, those of named members that
appeared before it, and everything after it.
* Fix CVE-2018-20482 - When creating archives with the --sparse
option, previous versions of tar would loop endlessly if a
sparse file had been truncated while being archived.
- remove the following patches (upstreamed)
* tar-1.30-tests-difflink.patch
* tar-1.30-tests_dirrem_race.patch
- refresh add_readme-tests.patch
- add tar-1.31-tests_dirrem.patch to fix expected output in dirrem
- add tar-1.31-racy_compress_tests.patch to fix compression tests
2018-05-11 - kstreitova@suse.com
- add tar-1.30-tests_dirrem_race.patch to fix race in dirrem01 and
dirrem02 tests that were passing/failing randomly because of that
- run spec-cleaner
- renumber patches
2018-04-03 - kukuk@suse.de
- Use %license instead of %doc [bsc#1082318]
2018-01-04 - kstreitova@suse.com
- add tar-1.30-tests-difflink.patch to fix difflink.at test
2017-12-18 - avindra@opensuse.org
- GNU tar 1.30:
* Member names containing '..' components are now skipped when
* Report erroneous use of position-sensitive options.
* --numeric-owner now affects private headers too.
* Fixed the --delay-directory-restore option
* The --warnings=failed-read option
* The --warnings=none option now suppresses all warnings
* Fix reporting of hardlink mismatches during compare
- cleanup with spec-cleaner
- switch all urls to https
- drop upstreamed patches
* add-return-values-to-backup-scripts.patch
* tar-1.29-extract_pathname_bypass.patch
- rebase add_readme-tests.patch

- remove tar-1.26-remove_O_NONBLOCK.patch as this issue was fixed

- Use update-alternatives according to current documentation
2017-03-27 - svalx@svalx.net
- Disable tar-1.26-remove_O_NONBLOCK.patch - this issue has been
fixed in tar-1.27
- backup-scripts subpackage change to noarch
- Change rpm group of tar-tests to Development/Tools/Other
- Enable rmt building, change package description
- Switch rmt to alternatives system
- Separate rmt subpackage - it can be used by different archiving
tools as a dedicated program
- Change rmt path to /usr/bin folder - it can be used by non privileged
users for backup purposes. Security is controlled by access rights to
the targets and remote shell.
- Separate doc subpackage
- Remove conditions for old SUSE builds and lang subpackage
- Rename restore script to restore.sh for avoiding file conflicts
with dump/restore
2017-03-23 - kstreitova@suse.com
- move binaries from /bin to /usr/bin [bsc#1029977]
