           Summary: New feature: adapt behavior thanks to extended
                    attributes (xattr)
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: ymartin59 at free.fr
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

I would like rsync to support the xattr "user.xdg.robots.backup" described at

If rsync runs with an option --xattr-backup-flag=user.xdg.robots.backup
it should skip directories and files with that xattr set to "false".

So that a user can decide what to exclude from backup without avoid to refer
directories into an exclusion file list.

I think it is also a good idea to emit a warning when such files/directories
are excluded.
