    Description

      Currently, when issuing "lfs project -srp xxxx DIR", command follows symbolic link and set project ID for the target of the link. Customer want a new option not to follow symbolic link.

      Can you please think on implementing a new option?

      They want to have quota based on directory.
      For instance, when there are two users and symlinks are created as follows,

        /home/user01/backup/link01 -> /home/user02/backup/file01
        /home/user02/backup/link02 -> /home/user01/backup/file02
      

      Then, when they issue 'lfs project' command,

        lfs project -p 10001 -s -r /home/user01/backup
        lfs project -p 10002 -s -r /home/user02/backup
      

      Project ID for /home/user01/backup/file02 will be "10002". As they want project IDs for all the files under /home/user01/backup to be "10001", considering this kind of possibility, they need to check all the files under the directory. They just want to simply run a command on a directory.
