Any tar-ball package created with 7zip or with bsdtar includes the

directory structure of a package as follows:








However when created on Linux (and possibly OSX) the directory structure

in the tar package follows the following convention









Packages created on windows in this fashion will not install properly

for emacs at all.  This is because of the function package-untar-buffer


(defun package-untar-buffer (dir)

  "Untar the current buffer.

This uses `tar-untar-buffer' from Tar mode.  All files should

untar into a directory named DIR; otherwise, signal an error."

  (require 'tar-mode)


  ;; Make sure everything extracts into DIR.

  (let ((regexp (concat "\\`" (regexp-quote dir) "/")))

    (dolist (tar-data tar-parse-info)

      (unless (string-match regexp (aref tar-data 2))

            (error "Package does not untar cleanly into directory %s/" dir))))




It assumes even the directory has a trailing backslash.  This can easily

be fixed by adjusting the regular _expression_ as follows:



(defun package-untar-buffer (dir)

  "Untar the current buffer.

This uses `tar-untar-buffer' from Tar mode.  All files should

untar into a directory named DIR; otherwise, signal an error."

  (require 'tar-mode)


  ;; Make sure everything extracts into DIR.

  (let ((regexp (concat "\\`" (regexp-quote dir) "\\(/\\|\\'\\)")))

    (dolist (tar-data tar-parse-info)

      (unless (string-match regexp (aref tar-data 2))

            (error "Package does not untar cleanly into directory %s/" dir))))




or something similar.  Can this be applied to the emacs lisp tree?

Since the fix appears to be quite safe, and the problem is new to Emacs
24 (package.el being introduced in 24.1), and no one else has chimed in,
I went ahead and committed it to the emacs-24 branch.  Thanks.
