Symbolic Link support in Vista

Hello,

 

I’d like to check with you guys – Vista has brought in Symbolic link support (and hard links have been present since Win2k IIRC). I’ve got a file or two under version control that are repeated because they are configuration files so I’ve just symlinked them together. When committing I get errors:

 

Commit succeeded, but other errors follow:

Error bumping revisions post-commit (details follow):

In directory 'D:\Development\Libraries\foo\bar'

Error processing command 'committed' in 'D:\Development\Libraries\foo\bar'

Error comparing

'D:\Development\Libraries\foo\bar\setup.h' and 'D:\Development\Libraries\foo\bar\.svn\text-base\setup.h.svn-base'

Symbolic links are not supported on this platform

 

Is this an issue that I should be checking with the Subversion developers instead? And if so – how will TSVN handle such a scenario?

 

Regards,

Joel
