Log message:
Update to 1.31

Changelog:
version 1.31 - Sergey Poznyakoff, 2019-01-02

* 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.

Log message:
gtar: update to 1.30

version 1.30 - Sergey Poznyakoff, 2017-12-17

* Member names containing '..' components are now skipped when extracting.

This fixes tar's behavior to match its documentation, and is a bit
safer when extracting untrusted archives over old files (an unsafe
practice that the tar manual has long recommended against).

* Report erroneous use of position-sensitive options.

During archive creation or update, tar keeps track of positional
options (see the manual, subsection 3.4.4 "Position-Sensitive
Options"), and reports those that had no effect.  For example, when
invoked as

   tar -cf a.tar . --exclude '*.o'

tar will create the archive, but will exit with status 2, having
issued the following error message

   tar: The following options were used after non-optional
   arguments in archive create or update mode.  These options are
   positional and affect only arguments that follow them.  Please,
   rearrange them properly.
   tar: --exclude '*.o' has no effect
   tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

* --numeric-owner now affects private headers too.

This helps the output of 'tar' to be more deterministic.

* Fixed the --delay-directory-restore option

In some cases tar would restore the directory permissions too early,
causing subsequent link extractions in that directory to fail.

* The --warnings=failed-read option

This new warning control option suppresses warning messages about
unreadable files and directories. It has effect only if used together
with the --ignore-failed-read option.

* The --warnings=none option now suppresses all warnings

This includes warnings about unreadable files produced when
--ignore-failed-read is in effect. To output these, use
--warnings=none --warnings=no-failed-read.

* Fix reporting of hardlink mismatches during compare

Tar reported incorrect target file name in the 'Not linked to'
diagnostic message.

------------------------------------
version 1.29 - Sergey Poznyakoff, 2016-05-16

* New options: --verbatim-files-from, --no-verbatim-files-from

The --verbatim-files-from option instructs tar to treat each line read
from a file list as a file name, even if it starts with a dash.

File lists are supplied with the --files-from (-T) option.  By
default, each line read from a file list is first stripped off the
leading and trailing whitespace and, if the result begins with a dash,
it is treated as tar command line option.

Use the --verbatim-files-from option to disable this special handling.
This facilitates the use of tar with file lists created automatically
(e.g. by find(1) command).

This option affects all --files-from options that occur after it in
the command line.  Its effect is reverted by the
--no-verbatim-files-from option.

* --null option reads file names verbatim

The --null option implies --verbatim-files-from.  I.e. each line
read from null-delimited file lists is treated as a file name.

This restores the documented behavior, which was broken in version
1.27.

* New options: --owner-map=FILE and --group-map=FILE

These two options provide fine-grained control over what user/group
names (or IDs) should be mapped when adding files to archive.

For both options, FILE is a plain text file with user or group
mappings.  Empty lines are ignored.  Comments are introduced with
# sign (unless quoted) and extend to the end of the corresponding
line.  Each non-empty line defines translation for a single UID (GID).
It must consist of two fields, delimited by any amount of whitespace:

     OLDNAME NEWNAME[:NEWID]

OLDNAME is either a valid user (group) name or a ID prefixed with +.  Unless
NEWID is supplied, NEWNAME must also be either a valid name or a
+ID.  Otherwise, both NEWNAME and NEWID need not be listed in the
system user database.

* New option --clamp-mtime

The new --clamp-mtime option changes the behavior of --mtime to only
use the time specified if the file mtime is newer than the given time.
The --clamp-mtime option can only be used together with	--mtime.

Typical use case is to make builds reproducible: to loose less
information, it's better to keep the original date of an archive,
except for files modified during the build process. In that case, using
reference (and thus reproducible) timestamps for the latter is good
enough.

See <https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds> for more information.

* Deprecated --preserve option removed

* Sparse file detection

Tar now uses SEEK_DATA/SEEK_HOLE on systems that support it.  This
allows for considerable speed-up in sparse-file detection.

New option --hole-detection is provided, that allows the user to
select the algorithm used for hole detection.  Available arguments
are:

  --hole-detection=seek
     Use lseek(2) SEEK_DATA and SEEK_HOLE "whence" parameters.

  --hole-detection=raw
     Scan entire file before storing it to determine where holes
     are located.

The default is to use "seek" whenever possible, and fall back to
"raw" otherwise.

Log message:
Update gtar to 1.28. Add a Makefile.common and use it.
Use official man page, now that there is one.

version 1.28, 2014-07-28

* New checkpoint action: totals

The --checkpoint-action=totals option instructs tar to output the
total number of bytes transferred at each checkpoint.

* Extended checkpoint format specification.

New conversion specifiers are implemented.  Some of them take
optional arguments, supplied in curly braces between the percent
sign and the specifier letter.

  %d        -  Number of seconds since tar started.
  %{r,w,d}T -  I/O totals; optional arguments supply prefixes
               to be used before number of bytes read, written and
	       deleted, correspondingly.
  %{FMT}t   -  Current local time using FMT as strftime(3) format.
               If {FMT} is omitted, use %c.
  %{N}*     -  Pad output with spaces to the Nth column, or to the
               current screen width, if {N} is not given.
  %c        -  A shortcut for "%{%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S}t: %ds, \ 
%{read,wrote}T%*\r"

* New option --one-top-level

The option --one-top-level tells tar to extract all files into a
subdirectory named by the base name of the archive (minus standard
compression suffixes recognizable by --auto-compress).  When used with
an argument, as in --one-top-level=DIR, the files are extracted into the
supplied DIRectory.  This ensures that no archive members are
extracted outside of the specified directory, even if the archive is
crafted so as to put them elsewhere.

* New option --sort

The --sort=ORDER option instructs tar to sort directory entries
according to ORDER.  It takes effect when creating archives.
Available ORDERs are: none (the default), name and inode.  The
latter may be absent, if the underlying system does not provide
the necessary information.

Using --sort=name ensures the member ordering in the created archive
is uniform and reproducible.  Using --sort=inode reduces the number
of disk seeks made when creating the archive and thus can considerably
speed up archivation.

* New exclusion options

  --exclude-ignore=FILE   Before dumping a directory check if it
                          contains FILE, and if so read exclude
                          patterns for this directory from FILE.
  --exclude-ignore-recursive=FILE
                          Same as above, but the exclusion patterns
                          read from FILE remain in effect for any
			  subdirectory, recursively.
  --exclude-vcs-ignores   Read exclude tags from VCS ignore files,
                          where such files exist.  Supported VCS's
                          are: CVS, Git, Bazaar, Mercurial.

* Tar refuses to read input from and write output to a tty device.

* Manpages

This release includes official tar(1) and rmt(8) manpages.
Distribution maintainers are kindly asked to use these instead of the
home-made pages they have been providing so far.
