Jo, me too :D I'll have a second look now again.

The root of the problem (^_^) is, that roots gets the path of the "real" file and not the path with the link location.
This confuses everything.
Because it returns the "real" paths and not the "symlinked" ones

well, after some digging, it kind of seems impossible or very hard to fix this
because symlinked files always return the "real" path instead of the path where it lies in the symlinked folder.
maybe @jenius has an idea, but I do not.

working workaround is btw, to just symlink the subfolders of shared-assets into the public folder.

and for deployment we just have to move the wrongly copied folder down a bit
