02:02 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: Why can't doins -r handle symlinks?
02:04 < zmedico> it's just not designed to.   maybe as a safety precaution since the links might be absolute or something.
02:04 < Caster> see it's a feature!
02:04 < Betelgeuse> zmedico:
02:04 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: the src_install is a bit icky atm
02:05 < zmedico> we can support relative symlinks for EAPI-1
02:05 < Betelgeuse> that would be sweet
02:06 < zmedico> bug it ;)
