Tarball settings

FishEye contains a feature that will build an archive of a directory tree. This feature is disabled by default. The 'Tarball Settings' repository option allows you to customize tarball settings in the Repository Defaults and on a per-repository basis. You can set a limit on the number of files that a tarball can contain, as well as selectively disable the creation of tarballs for certain directories or directory trees.
