Follow-up Comment #7, task #15699 (project reproduce):

One more thing.

> tar xf $odir/$name.tar.$suffix \

Maybe it would be more future-proof (and less confusing for unexperienced
users) to use short options with tar, instead of old style options:

"The old style syntax can make it difficult to match option letters with their
corresponding arguments, and is often confusing. [...] This old way of writing
tar options can surprise even experienced users."

So I suggest to change the tar command above to:
tar -xf $odir/$name.tar.$suffix \
