There are several shell scripts, e.g.

Other files that could and should have AL headers:

SQL scripts such as
(it would not harm to include a description as well)

There may be others. I suggest running RAT to produce a report.

There seems to a problem with reading the tar file using Winzip (and
in fact with Ant as well, which is what I use normally for
command-line unpacking). Some of the paths are missing some leading

I just tried using 7-Zip and that worked fine.
The archive matches the SVN tag once the unpacking is sorted out.

What exact command did you use to create the tar file?
It's clearly creating a file that confuses Winzip and Ant.

Maybe you can try using Ant to unpack the archive and see if you see
the same behaviour:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="unpack" default="unpack" basedir=".">
<property name="name" value="bigtop-0.1.0-incubating"/>
<target name="unpack">
    <gunzip src="${name}.tar.gz" dest="${name}.tar"/>
    <untar  src="${name}.tar" dest="${name}.tar-tgz"/>
    <delete file="${name}.tar"/>

I'm using Ant 1.8.2 on WinXP
