 Since CVS is not able to handle symbolic links, a simple mechanism has
 been implemented on the machine hosting the www.gnu.org to allow
 webmasters to control the symbolic link from the CVS tree. 
+By adding special files (".symlinks") into the CVS tree that are
+interpreted as specficiations to build symbolic links.  The
+"symlinks" script can be run immediately after a "cvs update"
+to fix the symbolic links according to the specifications
+included in the ".symlinks" files.
+The current directory is searched recursively for ".symlinks" files.
+Symbolic links that exist in directory where there is no
+.symlinks files will be ignored. Only directories containing a
+.symlinks file are handled.
+Each symbolic link specification from the ".symlinks" file is honored,
+i.e. the symbolic link is created if it does not exist yet. If a
+symbolic link is found in the directory and is not listed in the
+".symlinks" file, it is removed.
+Special handling to comply to the GNU webmaster standard
+is also applied.  If a subdirectory "foo/bar" has no
+"foo/bar/index.html" file and a file "foo/bar/bar.html"
+exists, then a symbolic link from "index.html" to
+"bar.html" is created even if it is not listed in the
+.symlinks file.  In short, an implicit
+               cd foo/bar ; ln -s bar.html index.html
+is done.
+Symbolic links that point outside the web site
+document root are ignored.
-The special file <b>.symlinks</b> contains a list of file name pairs,
-one per line. For instance:
+The ".symlinks" files obey to the following format.
+Each line starting with a sharp sign ("#") is treated as a
+comment and ignored.
+Lines that do not contain two strings separated by white
+space are silently ignored.
+Here is an example of .symlinks file content:
+               #
+               # Link foo.html to bar.html.
+               # Stricly equivalent to ln -s foo.html bar.html
+               #
+               foo.html bar.html
+On each line the first file name must be a relative path
+name to an existing file. The file designated by this path
+must not be outside the document root. The second file
+name may not contain any slash, it is the name of the sym-
+bolic link to be created.
-foo.html index.html
-bar.html other.html
-is a valid <b>.symlinks</b> file. Every night a script reads all the
-<b>.symlinks</b> files, prepend a <i>ln -s</i> in front of each line
-and execute them. Well, in reality it's not that simple but you get
-the idea. The <b>.symlinks</b> file can only be used to control the
-symbolic links in the directory where they are. File names with "/" in
-them will be ignored. For example, "../../gpl/gpl.html".
+The actual command used to implement this feature is symlinks(1) and
+the sources can be found in
