I looked as best I could and didn't see my question addressed (which 
doesn't mean it isn't), so apologies if this is in a faq and i missed it.

i am hoping to use rsync with the --remove-sent-files option. the sending 
side of the transaction will very likely include files that are being 
written to when rsync is run. will rsync include these partial files in 
it's list? i want to avoid the copying of the partial files and obviously 
their removal from the source.

source system, is osx, remote is freebsd 6.x

best regards
