            Bug ID: 11544
           Summary: doesn't copy files starting with "." in the current
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.1
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: wayned at samba.org

rsync -avzL --no-o --no-g ./*  user at example.org:~/path/to/folder

Either it should copy transfer all files in the current directory and
subdirectories recursively, including hidden files (i.e. whose name starts with
a dot) or it may omit by default all hidden files, from both the current
directory and the subdirectories, and you could use an --include rule to
explicitly include hidden files (or there may exist a dedicated option).

Observed: hidden files (whose name starts with a dot) in the current directory
are not sent. However, hidden files in all the subdirectory *are* transferred.

That's inconsistent and doesn't make any sense.
