I'm new to aRrsync... but I find the way the "Copy
Symlinks as symlinks" option is managed very strange.
Taking a look at the source code shows you add
the "-l" option if the option is checked. I thought
you would have added the -L option if not (to
dereference the link and copy the file) since the
default behavior of rsync is not to copy anything at
all if no l/L option is given and a link is found.
The man says (OSX, 10.4.3) :
By default, symbolic links are not
transferred at all. A message
"skipping non-regular" file is emitted for any
symlinks that exist.
Am I wrong ?
