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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.1.0nb1, Package name: rsync-3.1.0nb1, Maintainer: tron

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

Remove example rc.d scripts from PLISTs.

These are now handled dynamically if INIT_SYSTEM is set to "rc.d", or
ignored otherwise.

Log message:
Changes 3.1.0:


- Output numbers in 3-digit groups by default (e.g. 1,234,567).  See the
  --human-readable option for a way to turn it off.  See also the daemon's
  "log format" parameter and related command-line options (including
  --out-format) for a modifier that can be used to request digit-grouping
  or human-readable output in log escapes. (Note that log output is
  unchanged by default.)

- The --list-only option is now affected by the --human-readable setting.
  It will display digit groupings by default, and unit suffixes if higher
  levels of readability are requested.  Also, the column width for the size
  output has increased from 11 to 14 characters when human readability is
  enabled.  Use --no-h to get the old-style output and column size.

- The output of the --progress option has changed:  the string "xfer" was
  shortened to "xfr", and the string "to-check" was \ 
shortened to "to-chk",
  both designed to make room for the (by default) wider display of file
  size numbers without making the total line-length longer.  Also, when
  incremental recursion is enabled, the string "ir-chk" will be used
  instead of "to-chk" up until the incremental-recursion scan is done,
  letting you know that the value to check and the total value will still
  be increasing as new files are found.

- Enhanced the --stats output: 1) to mention how many files were created
  (protocol >= 28), 2) to mention how many files were deleted (a new line
  for protocol 31, but only output when --delete is in effect), and 3) to
  follow the file-count, created-count, and deleted-count with a subcount
  list that shows the counts by type.  The wording of the transferred count
  has also changed so that it is clearer that it is only a count of regular

Log message:
Bump all packages for perl-5.18, that
a) refer 'perl' in their Makefile, or
b) have a directory name of p5-*, or
c) have any dependency on any p5-* package

Like last time, where this caused no complaints.

Bump all packages that use perl, or depend on a p5-* package, or
are called p5-*.

I hope that's all of them.
