           Summary: An option to transfer POSIX ACLs
           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: hashproduct at verizon.net
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

I'd like an option "--acl" that transfers ACLs if both filesystems support them.

POSIX ACLs are improved file permissions.  ACLs can grant access to users and
groups other than the owners of a file, and they can specify default permissions
for new files in a folder that take the place of the `umask'.

This option should be a matter of getting the ACL on one system using
"acl_get_file" and "acl_copy_ext", sending it to the other system, and applying
it using "acl_copy_int" and "acl_set_file".  It would take a little more work to
preserve IDs by name and make this play nicely with "--numeric-ids".  The "-a"
option should probably include "--acl".
