Please be patient, its hard to me to explain this even in my native
I think it may be useful to add an option like lograte's prerotate and
postrotate, that triggers server side scripts before and after rsync. It
would help the administrator work.
client -> rsync server -> 2nd stage rsync server
Want to rsync from rsync server to 2nd stage rsync server before rsync from
client to rsync server.
client -> rsync server
Want to run a check if there are "accepted but not liked" kind of files,
like executables or oversized mail folders. This check runs as soon as
rsync finishes and notifies the user.
I think that "prersync" would be more useful but problematic, the client
have to wait until it completes to begin the real work. Would there be the
need to keep alive the connection? Will the normal rsync process run
regardless of "prersync" result? What if it never ends?
"postrsync" is easy to "emulate", periodically scanning the logs. But then
you have related actions very separated.
I cant see any way to "emulate" "prersync".
What to you think?
