I've been googling and searching the mailing list, and I think this is
a new issue.

I just tried copying a kernel source tree, using this command

rsync -avz  linux- yuzu:/usr/src/linux-

I also tried adding this option:


but in both cases, the .config file was not copied over. It seems that
rsync is copying hidden directories but not hidden files. Is there an
option I am missing somewhere?

Using rsync  version 2.6.9  protocol version 29
