Subject [jira] (MASSEMBLY-670) assembly plugin tar.gz format does not preserve timestamps of files it adds to archive
Date Mon, 04 Nov 2013 18:13:52 GMT

Steve Cohen commented on MASSEMBLY-670:
---------------------------------------

I realized that I could test this easily enough even with your git setup.  I manually touched
one file in the src/conf directory with a 2004 timestamp and found that the archive did reflect
the changed timestamp. 

So what is the difference?
My real situation is using apache-maven-3.0.5, my test situation is using 3.0.4, not likely
to be relevant.
Both situations use the assembly plugin version 2.4
My real situation is using jdk 1.6, the test situation is using 1.7
The real situation is using RHEL 5.0, the test situation is using Ubuntu 13.04

The only one of these I could possibly see as being relevant is the jdk.

> The .tar.gz archives created by the assembly plugin do not preserve the timestamps of
the files it adds to the archive.  There is no setting to override this.
> This differs from the functionality of the tar program.  That program preserves timestamps
by default, when adding to the archive and there is no option to change this, although there
are options to change the timestamps on extraction.
> The maven plugin should emulate tar here, I would think.
