Subject [jira] (MASSEMBLY-343) add symbolic links managment
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 14:10:21 GMT


Ahmed El-Madhoun commented on MASSEMBLY-343:

Hi Zuhayr,

Thanks for the fix, I am now able to build and test the patch.  I am not seeing the symlinks
respected.  I am simply using assembly to archive an artifact that contains a number of symlinks,
but they are all hard links.

Do I need to specify any configuration in the descriptor to ensure that symlinks are kept?
