[New-bugs-announce] [issue12088] tarfile.extractall fails to overwrite unresolved symlinks and hard links

New submission from Scott Leerssen <sleerssen at gmail.com>:
I'm opening this as a continuation of issue10761 since it was closed as fixed, and there's a bit more work to do there.
The fix for issue10761 was incomplete. It did not handle the case where the symlink being overwritten did not resolve to another file (i.e. a "broken" link). It also did not address the same issues with hard links.
The comments starting at http://bugs.python.org/issue10761#msg135924 detail the updates needed to complete this fix.
