Thanks, and welcome to the Git community. The patch looks pretty good to
me. A few minor nits:

The subject says 2/2, but I think there is only one patch. :) Looks like
you used send-email; the --cover-letter option is probably what you
wanted to generate the first message. Though for a single-patch series,
I'd generally suggest just sending one email total, and putting any
comments below the "---" line (which would then not be included in the
commit message).

The general form of the subject line looks good, and follows our

I'd suggest s/into/with/ in the subject line as a minor English fixup.
We'd often assume the maintainer will just fix up something small like
that while applying (or if he doesn't, that it's not too big a deal).
But since the point of the microproject is to get comfortable with the
patch submission process, maybe it would be good practice for you to fix
it up yourself (using "commit --amend" or "rebase -i") and re-send (try
git-send-email's "-v" option).

Same s/into/with/ here, too (or perhaps s/Replace/Convert/).

Maybe worth saying "to give more verbose test output on failure", though
now I am really nit-picking (sorry, you avoided so many of the usual
first-time-patch pitfalls I have to stretch :) ).

You remembered your signoff. Good.

And the patch itself looks obviously correct.

The "test -h" in the context sticks out now, but we don't have a
test_path_is_symlink(). I think adding it goes beyond the scope of this
patch, and beyond what's needed for a microproject. But if you or
anybody wants to add it (modeled after test_path_is_file), it seems like
a reasonable thing for us to have.
