Kwalitee Indicator: no_pax_headers core

This distribution is archived with PAX extended headers, which may be useful under some environments, but may also make extraction fail under other environments (Archive::Tar ignores PAX information as well).

How to fix

If you use Mac OS X >= 10.6, use gnu tar (/usr/bin/gnutar) to avoid PAX headers. It's also important to rename (shorten) long file names (>= 100 characters) in the distribution.
