Sorry, but it seems everytime I setup a different rsync operation
(client only) I end up here unraveling the include/exclude stuff I
The documentation is quite good but I guess the subject is just quite
a bit to chew.
To cut to the chase:
I want to sync up my own snapshot repository of openbsd. The basic
install files. They reside at:
However, there is also a `ports' source file that I want to include
that resides at:
One level up from the other stuff. At that level, there are lots of
different architectures etc I don't need so want to exclude.
I'm trying this approach
rsync [...] (various flags skipped)
./include looks like:
That gets the ports.tar.gz and and empty directory named i386
Doesn't get i386 or anything under it:
Ditto for this:
So how is something like this done? And what do I need to know to be
able to figure it out next time?
