Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-01-09 16:32:15 UTC
The spec file for tar claims that the source for it comes from{version}.tar.gz, but the latest version
available in that location is 1.13, even though what's currently being
shipped in the RPM is 1.13.16.  I dug around a bit but was unable to figure
out where the source is actually coming from.  The spec file should
identify the actual location from which the source came.
