I'm new to rsync, just read little of codes right now. 

I have read the pipe line would be "generator → sender → receiver". 
But I didn't find where rsync makes sure that the file is going to be transfered (time stamp/file checksum).

     A. Is there anyone familiar with the code,  can give me some tips
a) where generator send the time stamp/file checksum 
b) where sender compared time stamp/file stamp
c) where receiver make sure that it's a go mission?

I think some function names is enough for me shorten the time and get a
basic understanding of the code.

Thanks in advance.
