           Summary: Duplicate "not creating new directory" output w/
                    incremental recursion
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: matt at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

With --ignore-non-existing and incremental recursion, rsync prints the "not
creating new directory" verbose message twice for each directory.  This is
because directories are visited twice in incremental recursion.  A test needs
to be added to only print the message on one of the visits.

$ mkdir src src/subdir dest
$ rsync -r --ignore-non-existing -vv src/ dest/
