Bug#650668: ITP: tardiff -- Tarball comparison tool

Package: wnpp
Owner: Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : tardiff
  Version         : 0.1
  Upstream Author : Josef Spillner <josef@coolprojects.org>

  Description     : Tarball comparison tool

  TarDiff compares the contents of two tarballs and reports on any
  differences found between them. Its use is mainly for release managers
  who can use it as a QA tool to make sure no files have accidently been
  left over or were added by mistake. TarDiff supports compressed
  tarballs, diff statistics and suppression of GNU autotool changes.

There is a ptardiff command in the package perl, but it can only diff
tar balls against directories, not tarballs against tarballs.

Tardiff is also written in Perl, but does not use Archive::Tar but the
command tar itself.
