This command doesn't specify a destination, just a source.  Thus, it
just lists the source.  You must tell rsync where to put the files if
you want it to do a copy.

Also, your include file will have no effect whatsoever because the
default is to include everything from the source.  Try this instead:

rsync -azv -e ssh --stats /tmp/loris/testrsync[1-3] ppukweb8:/tmp/loris
