Please change the recommendation to use --owner=0 --group=0 instead of
--owner=root --group=root as the end goal is to achieve 0 anyway and root
may not always lead to 0:


Similarly using --owner=root --group=root --numeric-owner with tar.exe in
windows leads to non-zero ids while --owner=0 --group=0 --numeric-owner
leads to 0 ids.
