Cockroachdb tar error

I would call this more of a bug report. Not sure of the proper place to report it.

[bab@cockroach2 ~]$ tar -xzvf cockroach-latest.linux-amd64.tgz
cockroach-latest.linux-amd64/cockroach
tar: cockroach-latest.linux-amd64/cockroach: implausibly old time stamp 1969-12-31 19:00:00

@marc Can you take a look at the above?

It seems we’re not filling in all the file information when building the zip and tar files: https://github.com/cockroachdb/cockroach/blob/master/pkg/cmd/publish-artifacts/main.go#L361

I’ll fix that.

This is fixed in https://github.com/cockroachdb/cockroach/pull/16208 and will affect all releases built from now on.
Thank you for the report.
