Issue #7106 has been updated by Krzysztof Wilczynski.


I would like to resurrect this - what do you think Luis and Usa-san?  I am more happy to re-base against Ruby 2.1.5 or head, and try to solve other issues.

Just let me know what needs doing, I would really love to help with this :)

----------------------------------------
Feature #7106: FileUtils.touch should allow touching the symlink itself rather than the file the link points to

----------------------------------------
Most systems support POSIX lutimes sys call that allows a symlink to be touched. I'd like to see this feature implemented.
Unfortunately I'd like to see this feature on Solaris as soon as possible but I cannot see lutimes syscall supported there.
