           Summary: Include rsync-no-vanished support script
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: jakobunt at gmail.com

Bug 3653 discussed how "file has vanished" warnings can be silenced. Code
changes did not make it in, but Matt McCutchen wrote the rsync-no-vanished bash
wrapper script, whose final version seems to handle it correctly, using
advanced bash features:

ignoreout='^(file has vanished: |rsync warning: some files vanished before they
could be transferred)'
set -o pipefail
rsync "$@" 2>&1 | (egrep -v "$ignoreout" || true)
if [ $a == $ignoreexit ]; then
    exit 0
    exit $a

What is missing is to make that script accessible to users. I suggest to
include it in the support directory in the rsync tarball.
