Package: xnc
Version: 5.0.4-2.1
Severity: normal

to extract directory from tar archive xnc is using something like that:
gzip -c -f -d /home/emil/examplearchive.tar.gz | tar -xf - exampledir/\\* 
It works for tar 1.15.1, but doesn't work fur current package in sid (tar

To make it working with this version of tar we need to add --wildcards
argument. And after modyfing those three methods in ~/.xnc/xnc.afs:

single_ex: bzip2 -c -d archive | tar --wildcards -xf - file;
single_ex: gzip -c -f -d archive | tar --wildcards -xf - file;
single_ex: dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile archive | tar --wildcards -xf - file;

it works again. 

However I don't know how to make those changes in upstream package. This
~/.xnc/afs.xnc is generated when you run xnc for the first time. and all 
files in xnc-5.0.4/other/xncafs* are different from those newly-generated

You filed the bug http://bugs.debian.org/384660 in Debian BTS
against the package xnc. I'm closing it at *unstable*, but it will
remain open for older distributions.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/595604. That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
