------- Additional Comments From wayned at samba.org  2004-09-16 15:43 -------
Yes, rsync doesn't output filenames that aren't being transferred, so when it
just twiddles the attributes of a file (such as the mode or group), it usually
does that silently (unless debugging levels of verbosity are used).

I'll consider this as an enhancement request for the future.  Certainly we want
to make better logging possible, but we do need to be careful about chaing the
output of the standard verbose mode (which some folks parse in their scripts).

Note also that you should attach patches to a bug report rather than pasting it
into the comments.
