I have a feeling this option was removed, but the integration tests still reference it.
It’s removed from everywhere except the config files in the integration tests. We could see that as an integration test for allowing deprecated/removed options. (it should probably be cleaned up, the config files are version 1 as well when the current format is version 2)
Ah okay, so the expected behaviour is that symlinks are ignored (not that the symlinks are duplicated)?
Correct. Symlinks are ignored. See also https://github.com/calmh/syncthing/issues/92
Thanks! (useless words here to get past filter)
