Distributed testing rsync mangles some sym links

memedough
created an issue

Hi Holger,

For distributed testing rsync does not handle some sym links correctly.

On the source host if there is a sym link:

baz foo -> baz fullfoo -> /full/path/to/baz

Then on the target host after the rsync the short sym link is broken:

baz foo -> name/baz fullfoo -> /full/path/to/baz

foo is now a broken link where the "name" is actually the arg given to rsync (i.e. --rsyncdir name).

:)

    Hi Meme. Could you try out installing

    http://hudson.testrun.org/view/pytest/job/execnet-sdist/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/.tox/dist/execnet-1.0.8a1.zip

    into your environment and see if it fixes the rsync-symlink and rsync-file permission issue?

    thanks, holger
