Subject tar task and symlinks
Date Mon, 28 May 2007 04:55:37 GMT
I am running into a limitation with the Tar task, it does not seem
able to handle symlinks. Neither untar nor tar.

If I am running an Ant script on an OS that supports symlinks and I am
untarring a tar archive that contains symlinks I expect those links to
be created properly. Currently empty files will be created instead.

Also, when creating tar archives there should be a way to add
symlinks, even if running under Windows.

Does anyone know something about this issue? Should I submit a bug report?
