           Summary: rsync doesn't obey .cvsignore (exclamation) ! semantics
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.3
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: aptosca at esseff.org
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

In a .cvsignore file, an excalmation point (!) on a line by itself is used to 
clear the exclusion list, including builtins.  rsync has done this in the 
past, but changed at some point ... I didn't trace the CVS logs for the change.

In excludes.c, ! is getting flagged off with the other meta-characters when in 
this case, allowing it would follow the (useful) CVS semantics.
