High Sierra b9 > pkgutil bug with APFS volumes

Number:rdar://34354824 Date Originated:09/10/2017
Status:Open Resolved:
Product:macOS Product Version:10.13
Classification:Serious Reproducible:Always

When you flatten  a dir with pkgutil --flatten, the FinderCreateTime properties in the toc of the .pkg archive are all set to Epoch time instead of the real creation time.

This is probably due to Problem ID 34354817.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Expand an existing .pkg with pkgutil --expand
2. Flatten the resulting dir with pkgutil --flatten
3. Dump the toc of the .pkg (it's a xar) archive with xar --dump-toc="toc.txt" -f
4. Inspect the contents of the toc.txt file.

Expected Results:

The FinderCreateTime properties values are correct.

Actual Results:

The FinderCreateTime properties values are set to Epoch Time.
