tar 1.15.91-2ubuntu0.3 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

tar (1.15.91-2ubuntu0.3) edgy-security; urgency=low

  * SECURITY UPDATE: files can be overwritten/renamed in any writable location
    in the filesystem via GNUTYPE_NAMES type.
  * src/extract.c: disable GNUTYPE_NAMES type processing by default since it
    allows for immediate symlink creation and renames.
  * src/common.h, src/tar.c: add --allow-name-mangling option to restore
    default behavior.
  * debian/rules: lowered optimization level on i386 for testcase #29.
