Subject: Avoid packaging stages w/ tar-1.13.92
Date: Tue, 03 Feb 2004 23:10:45 -0500
I thought I pass a little bit of recently accquired knowldge onto this 
list, and that is to make sure any machines release managers or arch 
leads are using to compile stages with do not use tar-1.13.92* for 
packaging the stages.

Whether this error I have will be reproducable on other arches is 
unknown, but my experience taught me that busybox-01.00pre5 and 1.00pre6 
will not unpack a stage built with this version.

/gentoo # tar x -f stage1-mips4-20040131.tar
tar: Couldnt remove old file: Is a directory
(same applies if the stageball is bzip2'ed and one passes -j to 
busybox's tar).

Anyone got ideas on the causes of this?
