You're right that that line is not enough to thoroughly explain hide
filters. However, the man page does say later:
"An s is used to indicate that the rule applies to the sending side.
When a rule affects the sending side, it prevents files from being
transferred. The default is for a rule to affect both sides unless
--delete-excluded was specified, in which case default rules become
sender-side only. See also the hide (H) and show (S) rules, which are
an alternate way to specify sending-side includes/excludes."
This adequately explains the "s" modifier, and from the last sentence,
one can infer that "H foo" is equivalent to "-s foo". Similarly, the
next bullet covers protect filters. Thus, the documentation is there;
it just isn't at all obvious. I hope to improve the explanation of
filters in my rewritten man page (see
