           Summary: Output overwrite action
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: maj at heko.dk
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

When using --dry-run between two locals disks, rsync outputs the files that will
deleted and copied/overwritten.

If a file will be deleted the line starts with "Delete", but when a file will be
copied or overwritten, nothing is displayed.

So I would like to suggest, that when a file will be overwritten, rsync writes
"Overwrite" at the start of the line, and when new files are copied, rsync
writes "Copy".

This would be very useful, as I review the list before I do the back up, and
with this feature, I would be able to grep in the list for data that will be
lost (deleted or overwritten).
