I tried without --delete-excluded but I can not stop rsync from deleting
on the receiver dir foo what it find empty on the sender dir foo, which
is what I am trying to achieve...

Do you think is possible? 
The Man say :

   "However,  if  you want to do a delete on the receiving side AND you
want some files to be excluded from being deleted, you’ll need to be
sure that the receiving side knows what files to exclude.  The  easiest
way  is  to  include  the  per-directory  merge  files  in  the
transfer  and  use --delete-after,  because  this  ensures that the
receiving side gets all the same exclude rules as the sending side
before it tries to delete anything"

Is it that what I am doing with:

--filter=':r foo'

or I am getting something wrong like syntax or whatever??

Many thanks for patience!
