Thanks. I'll try to convince my bosses to see this as "payment" for
using rsync :-) I just hope I can find a simple way to build rsync on
Windows ... I guess I'll try with Cygwin since I already have that
installed and I could build GhostPCL with it. Or do you recommend
This is for a production system which goes online Q1 2008. Should I use
the latest stable version of rsync (2.6.9) or will there be a release of
3.0 until then?
PS: Thanks for the new incremental-recursion algorithm. That one has
bugged me for a long time! Syncing 150GB of build directories sure spent
a loooong time in the scanning stage :-)
