[Gnu-arch-users] [BUG] set-tree-version does not break hard links

From: Mike Hearn
Subject: [Gnu-arch-users] [BUG] set-tree-version does not break hard links
Date: Tue, 30 Mar 2004 22:57:31 +0100
User-agent: Pan/0.14.2 (This is not a psychotic episode. It's a cleansing moment of clarity.)

I can't see any reason that set-tree-version should not break hard links,
given that it's useful in the following scenario, so I wrote this patch.

I have a tree, that I have checked out and built in. I wish to branch said
tree, but I don't want to have to wait 20 mins for the code to rebuild
(this is a large codebase with many small changes being made). So, what I
can do is a cp -rlv tree1 tree2 then do a set-tree-version in tree2, of
course this breaks my original tree without this patch :)

thanks -mike
