i love rsync for mapping transferring/mapping uids and gids by name. But
i would be interested in unmappable ids. Let's say, the source knows a
user called "foo" which does not exist on the target system. Since the
foo user doesn't exist on the target system, rsync simply transfers the
This bahaviour can be fatal. I would really like to notified about such
problems. In my version (2.6.9) i don't see any possibility, to enable
such warnings. And they don't seem to be available by default.
Do you agree?
Is it possible to extend rsync without chaning the protocol?
