Confusing arv-put options
I removed the collection and uploaded it again with the --no-follow-links option.
Now, the size is the same as on the local storage.
For me the arv put keep help on links is somewhat misleading:
--follow-links Follow file and directory symlinks (default).
--no-follow-links Do not follow file and directory symlinks.
with --no-follow-links, the link is still in the uploaded collection and it obviously points to the data without duplication. That’s what I wanted from the beginning.
Determine if this is a documentation or code bug. From the user's description, it sounds like the behavior --follow and --no-follow could be reversed from what was intended.
