           Summary: Rsync --remove-source-files Rule Filters Enhancement
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: thelok at hotmail.com
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

A suggested enhancement is to allow sender-side protection rule filters to
prevent/allow deletion of files. Currently there are receiver side protection
rules but none for senders.

Suppose a user wants transfer file A and file B using rsync. After the transfer
file B on the sender side is desired to be deleted by using the
--remove-source-files option. However currently there doesn't seem to be a way
to protect file A from being deleted if both file A and B are included in the
same rsync call.

The user could separate the single rsync call into two rsync calls, one with
and one without the --remove-source-files option.

If this sender-side functionality already exists then please disregard.
