Bug Description

This is not a bug, is to ask a feature. I'd like Bazaar to have an option to order it follow symlinks.
I symlink modules from a central repository into my project, and I need to track the changes of that modules.
Thank you.

Are you symlinking the directories and want to descend into them, or do you just want to symlink individual files? I guess you might want either.

What do you expect would happen if you checked out this tree?

Changed in bzr:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed

Related feature request: It would be great if bzr would follow win32 directory shortcuts (symlinks) in the plugins directory.

I would like to make my plugins directory contain links to my local branches of plugins which I store elsewhere for various reasons.
This works great on linux, but it seems that it does not work on win32, perhaps because bzr is no following windows shortcuts.

Not a big deal. Just a nice thing to have at some point.
