Do I need to send a patch to update this page:

I already updated this one in debian wiki:

> 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:
> https://superuser.com/questions/877037/root-user-uid-got-changed
> 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.
