  o Adding information regarding the *package-metadata* option for the *tar*
    service The tar service is highly useful in combination with the *obscpio*
    service. After the fix for the metadata for the latter one, it is important
    to inform the users of the *tar* service that metadata is kept only if the
    flag *package-metadata* is enabled. Add the flag to the .service file for
    mentioning that.
  o Allow metadata packing for CPIO archives when desired As of now, metadata
    are always excluded from *obscpio* packages. This is because the
    *package-metadata* flag is ignored; this change (should) make *obscpio*
    aware of it.

  o only do git stash save/pop if we have a non-empty working tree (#228)
