Is this considered a bug?
$ /usr/local/rsync-cvs/bin/rsync -ve ssh plum:tmp/other ~/tmp/other
skipping non-regular file "/Users/nick/tmp/other"
sent 16 bytes received 40 bytes 7.47 bytes/sec
total size is 4 speedup is 0.07
$ ls -l /Users/nick/tmp/other
-rw-r--r-- 1 nick nick 0 22 Apr 11:22 /Users/nick/tmp/other
Looks pretty regular to me...
The true non-regular file is actually at the far end, on plum:
$ ls -l ~/tmp/other
lrwxr-xr-x 1 nick nick 4 Apr 22 11:22 /home/nick/tmp/other -> file
Shouldn't the local rsync be reporting the error with the remote pathname?
What it currently reports is factually inaccurate.
