           Summary: iconv conversion not applied to symlinks
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: SunOS
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: nils.goroll at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at


first of all: Thank you very much for the iconv feature, this is GREAT and will
help A LOT with migrations to UTF-8. Again: THANK YOU.

This bug is to report that iconv conversion rules should also be applied when
reading/creating symlinks on the sender/receiver side, respectively.

I had a brief look at the source, but I dont think i'll manage to fix it this
week. But if help is needed on this, I might be able to find some time soon.

I'll upload a screenshot with a sample case.

Cheers, Nils
