           Summary: Spotlight comments (extended attributes) are not
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.9
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: p.org at gmx.at
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

rsync 3.0.9 on Mac OS X 10.6.8

As an example for working extended attributes: File labels are always properly
synced: Both during their first sync when the file + attributes is copied and
also after you change their states and sync again, the file remains untouched,
but the attributes are properly updated!

But Spotlight comments are not transferred, neither when a file is synced the
first time nor when the comment is changed, and another sync is then run.

For completeness, this is the command line I ran:

rsync \
--protect-args \
--archive \
--crtimes \
--hard-links \
--acls \
--xattrs \
--fileflags \
--one-file-system \
--force-change \
--exclude=".*" \
--exclude="Icon*" \
--verbose \
--stats \
--progress \
--itemize-changes \
--human-readable \
--dry-run \
~/Temporary/ \
