I've been looking for a solution to periodically pull files
from a server and delete them after a successful download.

rsync + the --move-files patch seems to be the perfect solution
for it as I can run it through ssh.

I've found the following download location in the mail archive:

The patch doesn't apply cleanly to rsync 2.5.6.
Is there a newer version of the patch somewhere?

Adding a link to the current version in the FAQ
might be helpful for others.

Is there any chance to get these patches into mainstream rsync?

Please CC: any replies.
