[MonoDevelop] Setting Maximum File Name Length for tar in Monodevelop with Tarball generation

I want to distribute tarballs of an application using Monodevelop packaging project.

As one of the projects is NLog as git submodule, the file name length (actually the path name) gets really long, longer than the 99 character limit imposed by tar:

tar: <solution-name>-<version>/NLog/src/NLog/LayoutRenderers/Wrappers/FileSystemNormalizeLayoutRendererWrapper.cs: file name is too long (max 99); not dumped

There is a way to work around this issue in autotools by editing configure.ac:


Is there a way to implement that in the packaging project?
