#60230: bsdtar --hfsCompression fails for non-root users
  Reporter:  AgilentGCMS  |      Owner:  eborisch
      Type:  defect       |     Status:  assigned
  Priority:  Normal       |  Milestone:  MacPorts 2.6.3
 Component:  base         |    Version:  2.6.2
Resolution:               |   Keywords:
      Port:  libarchive   |

Comment (by eborisch):

 #60176 and this are both likely due to issues with extended attributes
 that shouldn't be there (show up with '@' on ls -l listing) combined with
 an issue within libarchive if:
  * the activated file is set read-only
  * AND has extended attributes (''not compression iteslf'', as this is
 applied separately)
  * AND is not being extracted by root

 See also my [comment:16:ticket:60176 comment here on libarchive].

 For #60176, this can be fixed by squashing stray resource forks (as the
 port already does for a number of files) in the manpages; I haven't looked
 further at this one yet.
