I'm working on a (very) large python project with a large team of developers. This project has a single "src" directory that contains:
1. the project's python source files.
2. symbolic links to the source files of external dependent projects.
I'm attempting to use PyDev to develop this project. I've created a PyDev project and added the "src" directory to the project's PYTHONPATH (using Project>Properties).
However, I've discovered a problem. It seems that on my system, PyDev doesn't follow the symbolic links with "src", and hence the symbolically-linked files and directories are not included in the source code analysis. This prevents the "go to definition" feature from working, and creates false errors in the source code analysis.
This makes it difficult to use PyDev with our project. Would it be possible to fix PyDev to follow symbolic links?
