Re: [Subclipse-users] Handling of symbolic links not workingcorrectly

Here are the various situations I have come across with Sym Links with
the JavaSVN library.

1. Where a sym link points to another directory in the same working
copy, the directory is marked as having changes the files below the sym
link are shown as being unversioned files in the project browser and in
the synchronize view.

2. Where a sym link points to another directory in a working copy of
another SVN managed project, the same above problem occurs.

3. Where a sym link point to another directory and the target of the sym
link does not exist the sym link will be shown as a new file from the
repository in the synchronize view.
