I'll be taking a look at the how-tos in the www.linuxdocs.com site, so I can
get some things up to date. (like some libs on the Linux C/C++ programming
which i'm not used to work with).
After that I'll read out the faqs, docs, manuals and some other stuff that
can be useful to figure out what's going on with those bugs on tar. Then,
I'll move around the code and see what I can do. (first at linux, then on

As you can see i'm also sending a copy of this message to the list. I'm
doing this to "ask" the list if I can do that.
Let's see the answer...

Thank you,
