./net/rsync, Network file distribution/synchronisation utility

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.1.2, Package name: rsync-3.1.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

rsync is a replacement for rcp 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 are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand.
This makes rsync a good remote file distribution/synchronisation utility
in a dialup PPP/SLIP environment.

Note: it requires rsync on the destination machine.

There is a Computer Science Technical Report on the rsync algorithm
included in the distribution, and is also available as

Update to 3.1.2

NEWS for rsync 3.1.2 (21 Dec 2015)
Protocol: 31 (unchanged)
Changes since 3.1.1:


    - Make sure that all transferred files use only path names from inside the
      transfer.  This makes it impossible for a malicious sender to try to make
      the receiver use an unsafe destination path for a transferred file, such
      as a just-sent symlink.


    - Change the checksum seed order in the per-block checksums.  This prevents
      someone from trying to create checksum blocks that match in sum but not
    - Fixed a with the per-dir filter files (using -FF) that could trigger an
      assert failure.
    - Only skip set_modtime() on a transferred file if the time is exactly
    - Don't create an empty backup dir for a transferred file that doesn't
      exist yet.
    - Fixed a bug where --link-dest and --xattrs could cause rsync to exit if
      a filename had a matching dir of the same name in the alt-dest area.
    - Allow more than 32 group IDs per user in the daemon's gid=LIST config.
    - Fix the logging of %b & %c via --log-file (daemon logging was already
      correct, as was --out-format='%b/%c').
    - Fix erroneous acceptance of --info=5 & --debug=5 (an empty flag name is
      not valid).


    - Added "(DRY RUN)" info to the --debug=exit output line.
    - Use usleep() for our msleep() function if it is available.
    - Added a few extra long-option names to rrsync script, which will make
      BackupPC happier.
    - Made configure choose to use linux xattrs on netbsd (rather than not
      supporting xattrs).
    - Added -wo (write-only) option to rrsync support script.
    - Misc. manpage tweaks.


    - Fixed a bug with the Makefile's use of INSTALL_STRIP.
    - Improve a test in the suite that could get an erroneous timestamp error.
    - Tweaks for newer versions of git in the packaging tools.
    - Improved the m4 generation rules and some autoconf idioms.
