I was just thinking about the possibility of a flag that
provide rsync with a method that doesn't require a
source dir in the line command.
I mean, a method where the user just has to write a
file which contents all directorys that wants to rsync
(directorys without the same root), something like:
rsync -a --files-from=/home/user/files2rsync /backup_dir
I know i can do something like
rsync -a --files-from=/home/user/files2rsync / /backup_dir
and modify the content of files2rsync, but i think it will be
a good simplification and quite more "natural" to use..
anyway.. was just thinking loud
pd: again excuse my english..
