That sounds a bit fishy. I'm guessing someone actually checked in a symlink
file into SVN, and that's the one that appeared in your local repo.
Check it with
git cat-file -p HEAD:mylibs
This will print the contents of the file as it is checked into the
repository. It should print something like
You can also do a git log on the symlink file to see who checked it in
If git complains that it is not a valid object name, then it isn't checked
in, and only exists on your disk. That means you either created the symlink
unknowingly (or maybe your pairing partner, etc), or git-svn has some
hidden feature of doing this, but I can't find any notion of such a feature
when searching around.
Now, git-svn does scan for svnprops, and can do some handling of some of
these (svn:ignore for example). I doubt however that it did something
intelligent with the svn:externals property here. You could show us what
the externals are actually set to be though. git svn propget svn:externals
or something like that.
