Thank you Ángel for digging the history up.

What Loïc needs it a way to go. Else he can't fix anything.

How about changing the FTP code behavior so that it exactly works the same as
the HTTP code ? That is what the user expects. Or are there any 'riddles'
regarding symlink HTTP code behavior ?


Regards, Tim
LGTM. IMHO mirroring the behavior of HTTP is the way to go.
As I stated in #45037, my only concern would be if there's any path in the code that wget with some flags would allow a remote server to create a symlink *and* follow it.

It's not possible to create a symlink with HTTP, so it's not a problem there. And although I thought it was possible with FTP (I can certainly see symlinks on FTP servers), a brief test
sugests that wget doesn't mirror them, either?

Best regards
