           Summary: --files-from does not --delete
           Product: rsync
           Version: 2.6.6
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: AIX
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: michael.w.grenier at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

If a file is on the destination box but not specified in the file given to
--files-from option, shouldn't the file be deleted?

Actual command:
rsync -vrptgz --delete -l -P -e rsh --stats --bwlimit=120  --timeout=1600
--files-from=files.txt /src somebox:/src

I want the files and directories under somebox:/src that are not listed in
files.txt to be deleted. 
This is on AIX 5. (Perhaps this is a feature request?)
