I've narrowed it down to the code I want to work on. I haven't been able
to do much besides integrating some already existing patches due to a
change of jobs.
You will find that the code is a bit obscure. And it's C.
I have been studying whether to patch Unison instead, to achieve the
same goals (Unison is written in OCaml). In the meantime, I learned
about pysync (Python clone of rsync), but I am unsure of its stability.
And perlsync <http://perlrsync.sourceforge.net/>.
If Perlsync is reasonably stable *and* is wire-compatible with rsync as
people claim, I think that's what I'll work on.
