I have a separate ~/dotfiles folder where I keep my config files that I want to keep under git. I create a symlink under ~/.weechat/weechat.conf and point it to ~/dotfiles/weechat/weechat.conf

When I quit weechat, ~/.weechat/weechat.conf gets overwritten by an actual file instead of the contents of ~/dotfiles/weechat/weechat.conf getting overwritten.

This seems to be a problem with other conf files as well.
