i've been coming up to speed on rsync+ssh, incremental backups, etc etc.

atm, all working great across *NIX boxes.

but, i've recently been reminded that there are 'issues' with
poor/failed backup of osx-files' metadata, w/ rsync & other tools:

and, with a little digging, found a patch that addresses (solves?) it
for older (at the moment ...) versions of rsync:


does rsync @ v2.6.9, in fact, still have said issues?
is there (will there be?) an official solution from the rsync team?

thanks for your help.
