dgit: unrepres. changes: Tolerate creation of symlinks
Experimentally, dpkg-source on stretch will create patches to create new symlinks. (It will fail on attempts to modify existing symlinks and it ignores attempts to change plain file executability.) Implementation: add an alternative which tolerates the git symlink mode. This replaces the check on $oldmode, which in this context we know is all 0s and can therefore never match. While we're here, change the error message. Closes:#857382. Signed-off-by: Ian Jackson <>
