I was testing out a synchronization tool / backup tool for Mac OS X
today called "iMsafe", and I noticed that under the hood it uses
rsync -- yet the author gives absolutely no credit to rsync whatsoever.
Basically, it's a pretty GUI / scheduler with a copy of rsync built in
(which it calls "ditto").
To verify this, simply download iMsafe, and then open up the terminal
application. Then do:
... which prints out the full rsync 2.5.5 help screen.
What does the rsync community think about this? If not illegal, I think
it's at least bad karma.
