not sure if this helps any but here's a link to a link to a solution to symlinks using zipfile.

Correct, Trac doesn't handle symlinks in zip archives.

comment:3 by izzysoft@…, 12 years ago

This ticket now is already 3 years old. Will there be worked on? I nkow that ZIP cannot handle symlinks, but there still could be something done:

  • create .tar.gz files as an alternative to .zip
  • ommit the symlinks, and instead add some shell script to create them (this requires a reserved file name for the shell script)
  • simply ommit the symlinks

To chose the required action, some option in trac.ini could be used. The current behavior may cause problems in special cases, when e.g. the symlink en to the directory en_US gets converted into a file, and the program expects it to be a directory.

Trac handles symlink and executable in only Subversion repository, since Trac 1.0.2 [11745] (#8919). However, symlink and executable in Git and Mercurial repository are not handled.

I consider we could add islink and isexecutable methods to Node class and implement the methods in each repository.
