@Joakim, I think that you’ve misunderstood something in the discussion. No one is saying “tar” is not standard, just that you can’t read a tar tape under OS X without external software that can talk to the tape device. The versions of tar that Apple ships in OS X (both BSDtar and GNUtar variants are included) have no knowledge of how to talk to a tape device since Apple physically removed the sequential access device layer from the Darwin kernel when they started OS X.

Could you send me the document? My company provides labels for LTO tracking and would love to see what the “label rules above” are.
