Description Milan Kerslager 2001-05-16 02:22:59 EDT
When relative path is used, up2date bomb out with an error (trying to
create symbolic link in /var/spool/up2date without adding current directory
to the relative path from command line argument -k).
Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2001-05-29 15:54:18 EDT
should be fixed in the next version, it now takes relative paths
and paths of the form "~/foo" into account.
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2001-07-05 22:46:18 EDT
Code is verified working in the CVS versions.
