Regarding issue 2305 [svn info fails if invoked on a symlink to a working copy]

From: Erik Huelsmann <ehuels_at_gmail.com>

Issue 2305 is about 'svn info' failing when the current working
directory isn't a working copy but the target is a symlink to a
working copy.

I posit that running 'svn info' on a symlink target like that is
ambiguous, but that we should in effect be consistent accros symlinks
to directories and files.

If the symlink to a versioned file would fail, then also the symlink
to a versioned directory should fail.

Since we currently exhibit the above behaviour, I think the bugreport
is INVALID.

Comments?

bye,

Erik.
