tar-1.27.1-12.1 RPM for x86_64

From OpenSuSE Leap 42.1 updates for x86_64

Name: tar Distribution: openSUSE Leap 42.1
Version: 1.27.1 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 12.1 Build date: Thu Dec 15 18:16:50 2016
Group: System/Base Build host: cloud121
Size: 1209666 Source RPM: tar-1.27.1-12.1.src.rpm
Summary: GNU implementation of tar ((t)ape (ar)chiver)
This package normally also includes the program "rmt", which provides
remote tape drive control. Since there are compatible versions of 'rmt'
in either the 'star' package or the 'dump' package, we didn't put 'rmt'
into this package. If you are planning to use the remote tape features
provided by tar you have to also install the 'dump' or the 'star'
