rsync, --cvs-exclude option.

Hi Martin,

Yes we can add "--include=*.exe", 

But --cvs-exclude means excluding only CVS dir right, But currently it is excluding other also.

I am confused.

static char default_cvsignore[] =
        /* These default ignored items come from the CVS manual. */
        "RCS SCCS CVS CVS.adm RCSLOG cvslog.* tags TAGS"
        " .make.state .nse_depinfo *~ #* .#* ,* _$* *$"
        " *.old *.bak *.BAK *.orig *.rej .del-*"
        " *.a *.olb *.o *.obj *.so *.exe"
        " *.Z *.elc *.ln core"
        /* The rest we added to suit ourself. */
        " .svn/";

Add a --include="*.exe". 
This worked in my short test.

I'm too. But a "emerge -uvaD world" on my gentoo box is already running...
