Perhaps that is the document he needs.  If not could you
cygwinese, cygwinites, cygwinists, cygwinim or whatever
point him to one that will clear up the slash/backslash
issues that still haven't been addressed.  Rsync does not
recognise backslashes as such in exclude patterns.  Path
components are expected to be delimited by slashes ("/")
only.  I expect the cygwin library translates as necessary.
