Subject Re: [VFS] Writing to Jar, Zip, Tar..
Date Sat, 25 Aug 2007 15:19:00 GMT

It is an interesting topic (to underline this: I am sitting here on vacation for a hadful
of days using my mobile to write this mail ;-) ), though, due to some other OS projects I
am really getting out of time.
Anyway, the j.i.file way of truezip is the case why I didnt support this idea actively - i
dont like this api.
So, to reach the point having compress dealing with this stuff AND a working vfs provider
will wake me up again ;-)

from the original author. I wanted to provide a  patch for some feature. It did not fit into
his vision of truezip. So  I left. (Did I hear someone say fork?) IMO extending
is  also a very questionable design approach. But anyway - the problem  with this is that
with truezip being available there are even less  people eager to work on compress for
the most simple things  there is truezip available.
