Is it OK for one definition to be dependent/inherently refer to another definition of the same word, as (5) and (6) for English/Noun? (I'm being picky, but its a dictionary). —This comment was unsigned.

I prefer to reword definitions like that. In this case, I seriously doubt the existence of #6 - I've only heard that referred to as a "tarball" or a "tar file" but never a "tar." --Connel MacKenzie 04:56, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Derivation tarball link, from tar (computing)?Edit

It seems appropriate to include a link to the derivation word 'tarball' underneath the 2nd etymology. 00:08, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
