Does git support symlinks on Windows? (I know hg doesn't.)

Ugh really?  I guess b/c of FAT32?

No idea about git.  Alright, lowest common denominator.

No, I mean, hg supports symlinks on other platforms, just not Windows.
Comment 5 Chris Jones [:cjones] inactive; ni?/f?/r? if you need me 2011-08-04 11:43:47 PDT
I understood what you meant.  I don't want to leave broken stuff in the repo for windows users.

Whoops, .hgignore and .gitignore are incompatible by default.  Great.
Comment 7 Ted Mielczarek [:ted.mielczarek] 2011-08-05 03:42:45 PDT
Feel free to add a git-compatible .gitignore.

I didn't convert some of the patterns because I wasn't sure what they meant.

> +# .hgignore - List of filenames hg should ignore

Probably should fix this?
