I was looking for a solution to force  special unix permissions in
conjunction with rsync.  I want to use
it for a webserver upload which is served by a rsync server. There I
need the special unix permissions to make sure
apache is functioning properly after each upload.

On Tue Mar 11 22:11:38 EST 2003 someone wrote a patch for that. ( )
I took a look at loadparams.c and couldnt find the parameters create
mask and so on.

So It seem the patch wasnt accepted by the rsync developers. Can
somebody tell me why ?

thanks in advice
