Subject [jira] (MASSEMBLY-670) Specifying <lineEnding> option of <fileSet> causes timestamps not to be preserved
Date Sat, 09 Nov 2013 13:53:20 GMT


SebbASF commented on MASSEMBLY-670:

In the meantime, it would perhaps be worth documenting the current behaviour.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Assembly Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: component descriptor
>    Affects Versions: 2.4
>         Environment: linux
>            Reporter: Steve Cohen
> (Summary originally was "assembly plugin tar.gz format does not preserve timestamps of
files it adds to archive".  Changed to reflect actual issue discovered through investigation.)
> 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.
