      Description

      Many Butler operations (ingest, import, export, etc.) have an option to handle files through links. However, applying this option to datasets that are themselves links leads to chains of links, which rely on every intermediate copy of the data to continue existing. It would be helpful to have an option that resolves links before processing them, so that any links in the output point directly to the original file.

      Jim Bosch and Nate Lust suggest much of the functionality for this could be implemented in lsst.daf.butler.datastores.posixDatastore.PosixDatastore.
