while working on another issue, I've noticed that when using Project.tarTree with a path to a file that does not exists, no warning or exception is thrown. instead it is silently ignored.

//example snippet:
task copy(type: Copy) {
    from tarTree('notexisting.tar') //this is silently ignored if it does not exist
    into 'tmp'
