HI all,

efficiency question for VERY low bandwith networks

Suppose I know the list of files that are changed
What is the most efficient way to make rsync sync this list.

Currently I use --include-from --exclude to generate a 'filelist' but I 
suspect that client and/or server exchange the list of files in the module to 
be synced.  this traffic can be avoided since the include-from points to FILE 
names and not FILE patterns

Suggestions ?
