What do you mean by ignore?  They're just warnings, so rsync ignores
them already for most things, just not deletions that happen after the
warnings (such as --delete-after), but see the --ignore option to handle
that.  If you mean that your script halts, you can code a script to
ignore only specific return codes (namely code 23).  One would need to
know what shell you're using to help with that.
