That would be a little clumsy for me, since there are no easily-defined
sets of users I could enable and disable conveniently.
However, the shell wildcards you mention are going to solve my problem,
What I've done is set auth users = [^#]* which takes rsyncd.conf out
of the loop when enabling/disabling user accounts; now I can just
prepend a # to an account in rsyncd.secrets to disable it and remove
that hash to enable the account. So far, this seems to be working great
Thanks for your help!
