           Summary: delay-updates option generate temporal empty fodlers
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.6
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

I use the "--delay-updates" option to make "atomic" updates in a remote host.
This way the big files (mp4 videos) are hidden until the whole changes have
been transmitted. This works fine, but these big files are located in several
folders and this folders are created in the remote host at the beginin of the
rsync start and are shown as empty because the files are not visible until the
transfer is completed. I think that these folder should also be hidden until
the whole transfer is completed.
