I hope someone pursues it anyway. Various Zope-ish distributions hit tar problems several times per year, and I don't know for a fact that it's necessary for "us" to use a specific tar program in such a way that other tar programs can't deal with the tarballs. Anyone up to date on their tar lore (I'm sure not)? > Still had the gcc4 warnings but no biggie there. Repairing that is adding a pile of tedious casting to C code mostly under my care these days. Since I don't have gcc4 and don't have spare time to install it just for this, it would be nice if someone with gcc4 submitted a patch. It should be easy (if dull) -- adding (char *) casts to the arguments gcc4 is complaining about. > Sorry for the hassle and certainly for the big leap to tarball > judgement. Hey, from your POV the tarball _was_ broken. _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
