Hi Good Folks:


Tortoise SVN should make Unix symbolic links and MS-Window short-cut
interoperable. At present, Unix links are converted into a text file.


My use case:

We operate in both MS-Window and Linux environment.

Documents and scripts are developed in both environments.

To reduce duplication, symbolic links are used in our Linux environment and
also checked the links into SVN. For us these links are all pointing to a
common parent directory within the same repository.

When my user check-out or update a project in a MS-Window' environment,
these Unix links should be converted into a MS-Windows short-cut.

When my user check a MS-Window short-cut and commit them into the
repository, they should be converted into a Linux symbolic link.
