Subject: Symbolic Links in HDFS

Hi Friends,
I wanted to use symbolic links in HDFS for my application. I found "https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-245"
in Jira for symbolic links.

I wanted to know that should I apply "symlink41-hdfs" patch in Hadoop. Currently I am using
Hadoop 0.20.2.
Other thing I wanted to know that is this functionality is provided to fs shell i.e. after
I apply this patch, will I be able to create symbolic links via shell commands .
