Hi Rob:

	I posted a patch several months ago (October 28, to be specific) that offers HFS+ compression support for rsync.  It's OS-specific, so I don't expect the rsync team to maintain the patch, but I'll be keeping it as up to date as I can.  Right now it's built and tested against rsync 3.0.6.

I was wondering if there was any thoughts on updating rsync to accommodate this? It is kind of a shame to the lose the benefits of the new compression. Thanks,  Rob
