Well, at least for tar, I've experienced no problem here yet. But: true, it might change between tar versions. A more sophisticated approach, IMHO, would be: directly fetching from the VCS, but that would probably mean a major design change. (my Briegel buildsystem goes this way ... it doesnt even patch on itself anymore, thats done entirely in git) cu -- --------------------------------------------------------------------- Enrico Weigelt == metux IT service - --------------------------------------------------------------------- Please visit the OpenSource QM Taskforce: Patches / Fixes for a lot dozens of packages in dozens of versions: ---------------------------------------------------------------------
