Summary: Replacement for RCP/mirror that has Many More Features
rsync uses the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for
bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the
differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both
sets of files be present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. At
first glance, this may seem impossible because the calculation of diffs
between two files normally requires local access to both files.

A technical report describing the rsync algorithm is included with this

* Sun Sep 19 2010
  - rsyncd.rc changes:
    * Do not use killproc -TERM, but just killproc, so that killproc
    waits until the service is actually shut down, before attempting
    to restart it (when "restart" is used). Fixes bnc#546977.
    * Change the "reload" action to return "missing" because rsyncd
    does not handle SIGHUP
    * Adjust "force-reload" accordingly
* Mon Jan 04 2010
  - update to rsync-3.0.7
    - Fixed a bogus free when using --xattrs with --backup.
    - Avoid an error when --dry-run  was trying to stat a prior hard-link
    file that hasn't really been created.
    - Fixed a problem with --compress (-z) where the receiving side could
    return the error "inflate (token) returned -5".
    - Fixed a bug where --delete-during could delete in a directory before
    it noticed that the sending side sent an I/O error for that
    directory (both sides of the transfer must be at least 3.0.7).
    - Improved --skip-compress's error handling of bad character-sets and
    got rid of a lingering debug fprintf().
    - Fixed the daemon's conveyance of io_error value from the sender.
    - An rsync daemon use seteuid() (when available) if it used setuid().
    - Get the permissions right on a --fake-super transferred directory
    that needs more owner permissions to emulate root behavior.
    - An absolute-path filter rule (i.e. with a '/' modifier) no longer
    loses its modifier when sending the filter rules to the remote
    - Improved the "--delete does not work without -r or -d" message.
    - Improved rsync's handling of --timeout to avoid a weird timeout case
    where the sender could timeout even though it has recently written
    data to the socket (but hasn't read data recently, due to the
    - Some misc manpage improvements.
    - Fixed the chmod-temp-dir testsuite on a system without /var/tmp.
    - Make sure that a timeout specified in the daemon's config is used as
    a maximum timeout value when the user also specifies a timeout.
    - Improved the error-exit reporting when rsync gets an error trying to
    cleanup after an error:  the initial error is reported.
    - The AIX sysacls routines will now return ENOSYS if ENOTSUP is
    - Made our (only used if missing) getaddrinfo() routine use
    inet_pton() (which we also provide) instead of inet_aton().
    - The exit-related debug messages now mention the program's role so it
    is clear who output what message.

* Thu Apr 16 2009
  - update to 3.0.6pre1 (bugfix release)
  - noteworthy changes:
    - Fixed a --read-batch hang when rsync is reading a batch file that was
      created from an incremental-recursion transfer
    - Fixed the daemon's socket code to handle the simultaneous arrival of
      multiple connections.
    - Fix --safe-links/--copy-unsafe-links to properly handle symlinks that
      have consecutive slashes in the value.
    - Fixed the parsing of an [IPv6_LITERAL_ADDR] when a USER@ is prefixed.
    - The sender now skips a (bogus) symlink that has a 0-length value, which
      avoids a transfer error in the receiver.
    - Fixed a case where the sender could die with a tag-0 error if there was
      an I/O during the sending of the file list.
    - Fixed the rrsync script to avoid a server-side problem when -e is at the
      start of the short options.
    - Fixed a problem where a vanished directory could turn into an exit code
      23 instead of the proper exit code 24.
    - Fixed the --iconv conversion of symlinks when doing a local copy.
      receiving side when a mount-point directory did not match a directory in
      the transfer.
    - Fixed the dropping of an ACL mask when no named ACL values were present.
    - Fixed an ACL/xattr corruption issue where the --backup option could cause
      rsync to associate the wrong ACL/xattr information with received files.
    - Fixed the use of --xattrs with --only-write-batch.
    - Fixed the use of --dry-run with --read-batch.
    - Fixed a run-time issue for systems that can't find iconv_open() by adding
      the --disable-iconv-open configure option.
    - Complain and die if the user tries to combine --remove-source-files (or
      the deprecated --remove-sent-files) with --read-batch.

* Thu Feb 19 2009
  - update to 3.0.5
    - initialize xattr data in a couple spots in the hlink code, which avoids a
      crash when the xattr pointer's memory happens to start out non-zero
    - don't send a bogus "-" option to an older server if there were no short
      options specified - fixes (bnc#476379)
    - fixed skipping of unneeded updates in a batch file when incremental
      recursion is active
    - fix the %P logfile escape when the daemon logs from inside a chroot.
    - fixed the use of -s (--protect-args) when used with a remote source or
      destination that had an empty path (e.g. "host:")
    - fixed the use of a dot-dir path (e.g. foo/./bar) inside a --files-from
      file when the root of the transfer isn't the current directory
    - fixed a bug with "-K --delete" removing symlinks to directories when
      incremental recursion is active
    - fixed a hard to trigger hang when using --remove-source-files
    - got rid of an annoying delay when accessing a daemon via a remote-shell
    - properly ignore (superfluous) source args on a --read-batch command
    - improved the manpage's description of the '*' wildcard to remove the
      confusing "non-empty" qualifier
    - fixed reverse lookups in the compatibility-library version of
    - fixed a bug when using --sparse on a sparse file that has over 2GB of
      consecutive sparse data
    - avoid a hang when using at least 3 --verbose options on a transfer with a
      client sender (which includes local copying)
    - fixed a problem with --delete-delay reporting an error when it was ready
      to remove a directory that was now gone
    - got rid of a bunch of "warn_unused_result" compiler warnings
