Recently I took the patch Elias Penttilä wrote and 'forward-ported' it to rsync 3.
For people who don't know what it does, it implements backup of open files on Windows with rsync.
Because I think rsync 3 is more efficient and more current in comparison to rsync 2.
I made a small readme-page with information about what I've done so far and the status/limitations/binaries:
As most people, I'm a bit strapped for time and thus I like to prioritize the kind of
features/fixes/other changes that I need/peole want.
I'm contacting you folks to have a look, because I hope to get some feedback on what people need.
My hope is to get something that works so well to have it included it in the cwrsync-installer:
Their seems to be some interest from the cwrsync maintainer to possible include it.
Have a nice day,
