GNU cpio version 2.14

Item posted by Sergey Poznyakoff <gray> on Mon 01 May 2023 06:32:18 PM UTC.

GNU cpio version 2.14 is available for download.

New in this version:

New option --ignore-dirnlink

Valid in copy-out mode, it instructs cpio to ignore the actual number of links reported for each directory member and always store 2 instead.

Changes in --reproducible option

The --reproducible option implies --ignore-dirlink.  In other words, it is equivalent to --ignore-devno --ignore-dirnlink --renumber-inodes.

Use GNU ls algorithm for deciding timestamp format in -tv mode
