Documentation is definitely not my strong suit :-) It's
pretty rough, and I'm not sure that it's in the place that
makes the most sense, but it's at least a start. Let me

I first checked out rsync from CVS this morning and started
with rsyncd.conf.5 from that. I'm including the whole
*changed* rsyncd.conf.5 - I added an EXAMPLE in the
"auth users" section.
