Hi all,

I'm having a little trouble using rsync from my windows machine to a Linux
server in a different time zone.  I did some hunting through the
documentation and through the code, but it's not clear to me what rsync
does in this case.

I gather that in principle it uses UTC at both ends.  Will that happen for
a windows client (ssh to a linux box), courtesy of cygwin?

Thanks for any advice.
