Just adding a research note on how deals with symlinks:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/954560/what-does-git-do-to-files-that-are-a-symbolic-link

Note in particular: "BTW. If you are on filesystem like FAT that does not
support symbolic links, and your repository uses them, you can set core.symlinks
configuration variable to false, and symlinks would be checked out as small
plain text files that contain the link text"
