           Summary: Support Git, Mercurial, Subversion ignore lists
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.9
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: jglick at apache.org
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

rsync includes the built-in --filter=:C which is great for archiving source
trees containing CVS checkouts, but CVS is an obsolete VCS. There is no
built-in equivalent for the more modern Git, Mercurial, or Subversion VCSs.

notes, --filter=':- .gitignore' seems to work pretty well for Git (though there
are probably more advanced points of syntax that Git and rsync interpret
differently); but --filter=':- .hgignore' does not work well (since Mercurial
allows regular expressions by default), and there is nothing at all for
Subversion’s svn:ignore.
