           Summary: Make atomic-rsync atomic
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: matt at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at

The support/atomic-rsync script is not actually atomic because it moves the old
destination directory out of place and then moves the updated one into place. 
Make it atomic by having the destination path be a symlink to the actual tree
and atomically replacing this symlink when an updated tree is ready.
