Bug#741934: live-build: support for making the contents of the cache directory softlinks

Package: live-build
Version: 3.0.5-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

I'm trying to do multiple live builds in parallel. To not use excessive amounts of diskspace I'm using links to share the cache directory.

In the chroot stage that fails, since the copied links in the chroot don't point to any accessible location.

This problem disappeared after adding the -L option to the find command in the functions/cache.sh script.

This is going to introduce problems with the hardlinks in some situations of course. However those seem rare. Do you think you could make that change?

Thanks, Jonas Meyer
