I was glad to see a new version of rsync because I though that it was kind
of dead. :-)
Anyway, I just checked and noticed that the following isn't fixed yet, or
is considered a feature.
When run in dry-run mode, rsync doesnt report diffs in permissions and
ownership. IMHO this is not the expected and wanted behaviour, I want to
see exactly what it would do without the '-n'.
I have patches for this vs. 2.4.6, I can recreate them vs. 2.5.0 if you
In the case that is is considered a feature for some people, can we maybe
make it a runtime switch?
