Description :
>From a quick test, chown+XFS on IRIX seems to behave the
way Marco describes (below), but on Linux, XFS doesn't seem
to allow this ... is this expected or is something amiss?

irix/xfs:
$ touch foo
$ ln -s foo bar
$ ls -ld foo bar
lrwxr-xr-x    1 nathans  ptg            3 Oct 11 11:48 bar -> foo
-rw-r--r--    1 nathans  ptg            0 Oct 11 11:48 foo
$ sudo chown -h pcpqa bar
$ ls -ld foo bar
lrwxr-xr-x    1 pcpqa    ptg            3 Oct 11 11:48 bar -> foo
-rw-r--r--    1 nathans  ptg            0 Oct 11 11:48 foo

linux/ext2:

...

B.T.W. I just installed XFS on one of my development systems and it looks
good and more or less stable. But I have a question is it so that
one cannot change the owner on a symlink like it works on ext2
when you do a chown -h username.group <symlink-name>.

Marco.
