      Description

      The current plexus-archive copied zip and tar source from Ant, where now has lots of bug fixes interm of handling archive sizes.
      I would like to propose to sync teh zip and tar source with Ant 1.7.0

        An alternative is "truezip". See the truezip-maven-plugin. Seems to be a much better archiver implementation than the ant implementation. Much much faster.

        actually behind the scence, truezip uses ant's internal implementation of tar,gzip, and bzip

        using commons-compress 1.1 could be an option

        We support 2GB archives, but I'm afraid the patch is horribly stale.

        I think the proper fix for this solution is to switch to commons code for zip.
