Summary: GNU implementation of ((t)ape (ar)chiver)
GNU Tar is an archiver program. It is used to create and manipulate files
that are actually collections of many other files; the program provides
users with an organized and systematic method of controlling a large amount
of data. Despite its name, that is an acronym of "tape archiver", GNU Tar
is able to direct its output to any available devices, files or other programs,
it may as well access remote devices or files.

  - GNU tar 1.34:
    * Fail when building GNU tar if the platform supports 64-bit
      time_t but the build only uses 32-bit time_t.
    * Leave the devmajor and devminor fields empty (rather than
      zero) for non-special files, as this is more compatible with
      traditional tar.
    * Fix interaction of --update with --wildcards.
    * When extracting archives into an empty directory, do not create
      hard links to files outside that directory.
    * Handle partial reads from regular files.
    * Warn file changed as we read it less often. Formerly, tar
      warned if the file's size or ctime changed. However, this
      generated a false positive if tar read a file while another
      process hard-linked to it, changing its ctime. Now, tar warns
      if the file's size, mtime, user ID, group ID, or mode changes.
      Although neither heuristic is perfect, the new one should work
      better in practice.
    * Fix --ignore-failed-read to ignore file-changed read errors
      as far as exit status is concerned. You can now suppress
      file-changed issues entirely with --ignore-failed-read
    - -warning=no-file-changed.
    * Fix --remove-files to not remove a file that changed while we
      read it.
    * Fix --atime-preserve=replace to not fail if there was no need
      to replace, either because we did not read the file, or the
      atime did not change.
    * Fix race when creating a parent directory while another process
      is also doing so.
    * Fix handling of prefix keywords not followed by "." in pax
    * Fix handling of out-of-range sparse entries in pax headers.
    * Fix handling of --transform='s/s/@/2'.
    * Fix treatment of options ending in slash in files-from list.
    * Fix crash on tar --checkpoint-action exec=\".
    * Fix low-memory crash when reading incremental dumps.
    * Fix --exclude-vcs-ignores memory allocation misuse.
