I want to do incremental backups, so i'm using this :
# rsync -rltgoDvb --exclude-from=/root/scripts/quot.exclude 
--backup-dir=/tmp/www/ /home/www/* /backup/quotidien/referencebackup/www/
# cp -a /tmp/www/ /backup/quotidien/referencebackup/www/

timestamps of  files in /tmp/www/ are not preserved ...so my backups are 
not incremental at all.

is it a bug?

rsync version 2.4.6  protocol version 24
