Q regarding symlink behaviour

Message Hello everybody!

I'd like to ask about some behaviour that FSVS should show.

Please assume this directory tree:
and a symlink
   C -> A

Now this gets committed, and the "file"s change their data; and the symlink points to B.

What should a
   fsvs ci C/file

1) Give an error, because C is not a directory
2) Commit B/file (and nothing else), because this *target* was chosen
3) Commit C as pointing to B now
4) 2+3 together

I'm not sure what the right behaviour is ... all of these variants have some sunny side.

Any ideas? Opinions?
Thanks in advance.



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
