fribidi-1.0.5.tar.gz without symlinks inside #2014
Description of the problem
it would be good to keep contribs as archives without symbolic links inside.
MSYS2/ tar extract cannot handle properly creation of symbolic links on Windows OS:
HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0)
Please replace this text with the version of HandBrake you are running.
Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, macOS 10.14 Mojave, Windows 10 1809)
Please replace this text with the version of the operation system you are running.
Error message text or screenshot
Please provide any error messages or screenshots that may help.
HandBrake Activity Log (see https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/latest/help/activity-log.html)
My preference would be to have identical tars on primary and secondary and wait for upstream to fix in the next release. I.e. there would be no ambiguity and if our servers not available builds still work.
I generally don't recommend msys on windows, especially now we have the Ubuntu shell via Windows 10 WSL and the app store.
