      git-plugin 2.4.0

      Configuring Jenkins to use JGit, cloning a git repo containing symlinks leads to a clone where symlinks are replaced by files. The created clone config file contains the following:

          symlinks = false

      According to what I read in this JGit issue, I thought the issue would have been solved by meeting the following conditions:

      • running Jenkins on java 7
      • Using JGit>3.7.0, i.e. using git-client-plugin>=1.18.0

      It seems I was wrong, but I don't know where to look now.
