Subject: manifest writer tests are meaningless on windows
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 419b
The manifest writer tests check for the ability to handle file names with backslashes in them. This is meaningless on Windows, since backslash is the directory separator there and any file created with backslashes on unix, packed into a tarball and unpacked on windows would just end up in some sub-directories. In the spirit of cross-platform compatibility i suggest to not allow backslashes in filenames at all.
These tests have been relaxed. -- rjbs
