Feature #309129, revision 1
Title: tar should support acls

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: John Lange (johnlange)

The version of tar in openSUSE does not support acls therefore any backups done
with the Yast backup/restore tool that rely on tar do not preserve advanced
permissions. This may be especially problematic for systems co-existing in a
Windows environment. As a side note, Novell seems to be promoting acls as a
feature of SLE so making them work with backup/restore should be relatively
important. From what I can gather from this thread; Fedora has a custom
patched tar with acl support? Mysteriously this man page claims to be for the
GNU version of tar and has mention of acls: I
can only assume it's actually the Fedora man page?
