           Summary: rsync with local --files-from and remote source
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.6
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: AIX
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: john.buxton at eu.sony.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

I'm trying to copy files from a remote source to the local system, but using
a local list of files. This fails because it seems that rsync is insisting the
file list must also be remote.

# ./rsync -n  --files-from=/tmp/files remotehost:/ /tmp/    

rsync: on remote machine: --files-from=-: unknown option
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(994)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(434)

The reason I want to do this is so that I can control file distributions from a
central "golden host" (which can ssh or rsh everywhere).
