Hi all,

This week I've implemented and emulated all the features, options and
some quirks of the old clitar.c. It's now pretty much complete.
I wrote tests for most of them. I still have to write some extraction
tests to make sure everything works properly.

I've also implemented the pseudo-regex flag (which turned out to be
simpler than I expected) but it's behavior is a bit unpredictable from
a user point of view.

I'll go more in depth about this, along with a list of
suggestions/modification to the tar command on monday.

This code is available on the
gsoc_clitar_libarchive branch of my repo[1].

As usual, you can read more on my daily journal[2].
