Lintian tar error outdated?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
E: schroot source: source-tar-is-posix-tar schroot_0.1.1.orig.tar.gz
N: The source tar archive of this package is made with tar --posix. This
N: tar format is actually not understood by woody's tar.
N: Some automake 1.7 and 1.8 versions in Debian had this wrong tar option
N: for a short time, re-autobuilding should solve this. Please see
N: .html and
N: .html for more details.
I've been deliberately using POSIX PAX tar format for quite a while
now (over a year) using automake's "tar-pax" feature, and a
custom-patched automake prior to that. It's required for long
pathnames, a real problem with Doxygen, for example. Now sarge has
been released, is it OK to use newer tar formats?
