--- Comment #6 from Wayne Davison <wayned at samba.org> 2011-06-04 19:00:14 UTC ---
I've committed a change to 3.1.0dev git that allows a pre-xfer exec script to
send an error message to go with its non-zero exit status.  This will allow
someone to tweak their rsyncd.conf file to add a global option like the
following (assuming that they don't override pre-xfer exec elsewhere):

pre-xfer exec = /usr/local/bin/output-rsyncd-downtime-message

That script may output a message to stdout and then exit with a non-zero

You could also choose to leave the pre-xfer exec configured, and make the
script do your file-check:

if [ -f /rsyncd.downtime ]; then
    cat /rsyncd.downtime
    exit 1
