Description Alexander Potashev 2010-07-23 15:27:52 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

1. Run Lokalize and configure it to use trunk and stable branch
2. create a symlink to "messages" directory in trunk
3. click File->Open..., open the symlink, and then open a .po file inside it.
4. make changes in strings in .po file (in Lokalize). But now the changes do not go to stable branch. If you do not use a symlink, the changes also go to stable.


Reproducible: Always

OS: Linux (x86_64) release
Compiler: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc
Comment 1 Nick Shaforostoff 2011-02-10 03:08:03 UTC
is there cases when user would explicitly want lokalize no to interpret symlinks?
Comment 2 Alexander Potashev 2011-02-11 12:48:36 UTC
May be there are. Thought, I would never want this behavior. Don't know about other people.
