[SDK] arv-put supports --ignore-symlinks
arv-put boolean option
--ignore-symlinks (defaults to true) means that arv-put will skip any symlink it encounters.
If this option is false, arv-put will follow the symlink and upload duplicated data, possibly with duplicate blocks in Keep.
Bug report from awz:
<awz> hi - I used arvput to upload a dataset that includes some symlinks. <awz> It should be visible to admins: <awz> https://workbench.qr1hi.arvadosapi.com/collections/qr1hi-o0j2j-25b5nkz7dt0qdu3 <awz> I inspected the manifest manually and see that it appears to have copied the bytes and made separate blocks. <awz> It might have been cool if it had done something smarter. <awz> Either don't follow symlinks at all or reuse the blocks. Possible action item: add --follow-symlinks/--no-follow-symlinks options to arv-put.
