Support symlinks on Windows
Please add support for Symlinks (directory junctions, reparse points, ...) on Windows.
Also hurting a bit because of this.
I have a project that uses the exact same stuff from another one, and I would like to just symlink both on my machine alone (ie, only on my machine those are links).
But often Plastic will get "stuck" on changes when I use links. Some files will just stay as changed forever, no matter what I undo, commit, or reopen Plastic.

Its been almost 4 years since you declared that you'll work on this one.
Any movement on this?
Well, I don't consider it a bug but a pending feature, because it is not failing, it simply isn't there :-) (I mean, unless sync with SVN is also a bug :P).
I agree that IMHO this is a bug because, as already said, symbolic links are supported since Windows Vista and therefore must - not should - be supported by PlasticSCM, too.
Yes, this is a must... As soon as we finish a few open projects we have in the works, we'll work on this one. In fact I'm eager to get this done... it has been supported since Vista at least and we never took advantage of it.
