           Summary: rsync doesn't sync extended attributes
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.7
          Platform: PPC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at
        ReportedBy: joerg.sommer at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at


% touch src
% setfattr -n 'user.rsync.%stat' -v '40755 0,0 0:0' src
% getfattr -d src 
# file: src
user.rsync.%stat="40755 0,0 0:0"

% rsync -aHAX src dst
% getfattr -d dst

Even if I've used the option -X, rsync didn't sync the extended attribute of
the file.

Bye, Jörg.
