 # repackage.sh -- Repackage NSPR from /s/b/c to mozilla.org format
 #
 # syntax: repackage.sh
 #
-#
+# Description:
 # repackage.sh creates NSPR binary distributions for mozilla.org from
 # the internal binary distributions in /share/builds/components/nspr20.
 # There are reasons why we can't just push the internal binary distributions
 # to mozilla.org. External developers prefer to use the common archive 
 # file format for their platforms, rather than the jar files we use internally.
 #
 # On Unix, we create a tar.gz file.  On Windows, we create a zip file.
 # For example: NSPR 4.1.1, these would be nspr-4.1.1.tar.gz and nspr-4.1.1.zip.
 #
 # When unpacked, nspr-4.1.1.tar.gz or nspr-4.1.1.zip should expand to a
 # nspr-4.1.1 directory that contains three subdirectories: include, lib,
 # and bin.  The header files, with the correct line endings for the
 # platform, are in nspr-4.1.1/include.  The libraries are in nspr-4.1.1/lib.
 # The executable programs are in nspr-4.1.1/bin.
 # 
+# Note! Files written with Gnu tar are not readable by some non-Gnu
+# versions. Sun, in particular.
+# 
+#

 #
 # These variables should be modified for each NSPR release.
