[Lustre-discuss] gnu tar usage

I am using lustre 1.8.6, on a centos 5.5 system.

The installed version of tar (gnu, 1.15.1) is out of the centos RPM.  The man page claims that use of the —xattrs commandline option will get all of the filesystem's extended attributes.

My question: will it get the extended attributes of ldiskfs filesystems and of lustre filesystems?

In other words, has tar gotten to the point that it really can be used as a backup method?
