Hi all,

See the following command:

$ rsync -av  .

Which will download the file Release under the directory from which the 
rsync command is isssued.

If I want to keep the original directories structures, say, for this 
case, put the the Release in the following location:


If the directory tree doesn't exist, let the rsync create the directory 
structure firstly and then put the file into it.

Is this possible for this case?
