    Preserving owner:group and attributes in tar (mono/linux)


    I have following code to create a tar.gz from a list of directories:


    public static void CreateTarGzArchive(ICollection<FileSystemInfo> source,  FileInfo destination, ProgressMessageHandler pmhProgressEvents)

                Stream outStream = File.Create(destination.FullName);
                outStream = new GZipOutputStream(outStream);

                TarArchive archive = TarArchive.CreateOutputTarArchive(outStream);
                archive.ApplyUserInfoOverrides = false;
                foreach(FileSystemInfo fsi in source)
                    TarEntry entry = TarEntry.CreateEntryFromFile(fsi.FullName);
                    archive.WriteEntry(entry, true);





    The archive is created successfuly however neither file attributes (all files are marked +x as executables) nor file ownership information (root:root for all the files) is preserved... is there any way to solve it?

     From what i see in sourcecode ... such information is never set using filesystem data (rather user running the assembly??)
