Package: marble
Version: 4:16.04.1-3
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

    marble has for ages disabled symlinks traversal in a great part of
the local cache code. I know for certain that developers have decided to
do so to avoid user reports related to dangling symlinks (sorry, I can't
find a reference now). This bug report is to see if the Debian
maintainers agree this is wrong. Attached you'll find a patch that
removes all the references to QDir::NoSymLinks from the code. I tested it
and it works fine now. I will keep having this patch around, but I hope
you find it useful too, so everyone else can profit from it, and I don't
have to recompile marble from time to time :)
