freeze exception request for tar 1.20-1
I'd like to request a freeze exception for tar 1.20-1.
The reason is that lzma support was introduced in this version, and
lzma will be more and more important (developers have started to use
lzma-compressed tarballs instead of bzip2, see e.g. texinfo). Though
there are workarounds, they have drawbacks, and it would be quite
annoying to have an obsolete version of tar in lenny.
Also, tar 1.20-1 has been in unstable since 2008-04-17, so should
have been well-tested.
