according to developer guide (2.6) TAR archives could be used as input format in application package repository. i copied one TAR archive to /opt/vmware/www/ISV/appliancePackages which is used as app repository in my profile. all RPM packages from this repository are installed, but TAR is totally ignored. there is no messages in verbose nor debug logs during build.
does somebody have any experiences with using TAR-s for app deployment?
