I am using rsync between a BSD/OS system and a Linux system.
On the BSD system, the user/group is www.www. On the Linux
system the user/group is apache.apache.  I have not yet
found a way to get rsync to change www.www on the source
system to apache.apache on the target system.

Does anybody know a way of doing this with rsync.  I currently
use a find command to change the ownerships after the files
are transferred.  This is not good because of the time delay
and some files may not be accessible.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
