I just successfully used rsync running on OpenVMS to download the 
current rsync development tree.  I deleted a few files, and reran rsync 
which repopulated just the missing files.

It looks like I have a working client. :-)

My next step is to make sure that I can build the current CVS build and 
post a "beta" kit for ftp download with build instructions for the other 
OpenVMS developers that have expressed an interest in working on this.
