Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5347) Cordova returns unknown errors messages when symlinks are pointing to bad locations
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2014 22:43:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-5347?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13868418#comment-13868418

Jared Flatow commented on CB-5347:
----------------------------------

This is still an issue for me. I need to use relative symlinks for icons in an app in a git
repository, in order to avoid maintaining two copies of icons. Shouldn't cordova follow symlinks
when you are building and not copy links that might get broken? Wouldn't it be nice to guarantee
that the build directory is self-contained?
