SubjectHow does chown(2) works with symlinks?
Which file gets changed when a call to chown(2) is done on a symlink?
The man page gives the impression that it would follow the symlink and
change the owner of the file pointed by the symlink. Still, if a used
chown on a symlink now, it will only change the symlink. Was there a
change to the way it works?
