TAR Shipped Without Backup/Restore Scripts

I'm requesting that the backup/restore scripts in the tar source gets included in the tar package.

I was reading the "incremental" topic at gnu and was directed to view the "levels" topic at https://www.gnu.org/software/tar/manual … kup-Levels
There, I saw it mentioned that backup/restore scripts are included with tar.
However "$ pacman -Ql tar" did not show such scripts.

I downloaded/extracted the latest tar package and saw there is a scripts dir in it.

Re: TAR Shipped Without Backup/Restore Scripts

Please consider opening a feature request asking for the --enable-backup-scripts configure option be added to the tar package.
