The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3147
message 'copying unsafe symlink' only appears if verbose>=2
Last modified: 2006-03-12 02:56:57 UTC
when using --copy-unsafe-symlink, the message `copying unsafe symlink' should be
displayed even with a single --verbose switch as it is the case for similar
messages like `ignoring unsafe symlink'.
simple fix in file flist.c, function readlink_stat
I like the way that rsync currently handles this for the following reason:
When --links or --copy-links is used, rsync doesn't output a special message to indicate that something has gone according to plan, it just does what you told it to do.
The "ignoring unsafe symlink" message is more like the "skipping directory" message: it indicates that some item was not copied, and thus is a useful indication that you may need to take additional steps after the copy is done.
