#1411 Issue closed: Support 'tar' xattrs (--xattrs --xattrs-include='.') by default when possible

Labels: enhancement, fixed / solved / done

jsmeix opened issue at 2017-07-14 10:37:

As many Linux distributions nowadays enable xattr and acl by default
ReaR should also support that for 'tar' by default - but only
when possible because older 'tar' does not support that.

For background information and some details see

Regarding older 'tar' does not support that, cf.
