and the affected component, reopen and post your results.

> I have Git installed on my Windows machine. That includes the ln.exe command line executable.
The Git installation adds its bin directory to the path. I imagine the same would be true
if you install GnuWin32 CoreUtils, which also includes ln.exe.
> The result is the following test failure:
> Failed tests:   testIncludesDontFollowSymlinks(org.apache.maven.shared.model.fileset.util.FileSetUtilsTest):
expected:<1> but was:<2>
> This is because the test code creates links using ln on the command line, and the code
to test for symbolic links doesn't work on Windows.
