Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 40059] Add method to explicitly define symlinks in <tar> task
Date Mon, 04 Jan 2010 11:40:02 GMT

Mike, nobody works on Ant in any paid form, the general rule is that to fix a
problem that you have, the best way is to patch your local copy of the source,
then submit a patch including those changes and some tests/documentation, as
that is what is needed to get your patch in the main branch,

There is a workaround, which is you create the (hanging) symlink in the source
filesystem pointing to the final destination, and then tar it using the native
tar command, instead of the <tar> task. I've been using this when creating
RPMs. It isn't x-platform though, only works on a unix system.
