> Starting with Windows Vista there is full support for all kinds of symlinks. Even Windows
XP does have partial support for 
> symlinks.
> Currently subversion gives this error message when you try to submit symlinks from Windows:
> "Symbolic links are not supported on this platform"
> Information regarding symlinks under Windows
> http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365680(VS.85).aspx
> Remark, under Windows directory symlinks are called junction points and also symlinks
are working only on NTFS. 
> It could be helpful to read http://bugs.python.org/issue1578269 - specially to be aware
about the fact that by default only 
> Administrators can create symlinks. Anyway subversion should only try create the symlink
and if this fails to display an error 
> message indicating a solution to the user (assigning this privilege to normal user).
