           Summary: Feature request: Add support for pre/post cmds for the
                    rsync client
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: idl0r at qasl.de
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org


it would be really useful to have some kind of --pre-cmd/--post-cmd and esp.
more advanced like --post-cmd-fail, --post-cmd-success.
rsync should then execute the passed scripts and (add a command for it as
well?) it should also pass the list of transfered (all), failed or successfully
transfered files/dirs.
A control option for it could e.g. look like --cmd-pass=[0|1|2|3] where:
0 = disabled, nothing passed at all
1 = only successfully transfered objects
2 = only failed
3 = any

That would make rsync almost perfect and one could easily take care of
different situations without having to parse the complete output of rsync. It
shouldn't be that difficult actually, esp. basic pre/post cmds.

I'd perhaps even try to write a patch that adds the mentioned features (in case
I get to it).
