I'm still not getting to where I need to be. Maybe you can explain
what has gone wrong in this very simple example:
% mkdir one two
% echo hello > one/hello
% ln one/hello two/hello
% echo different0 > one/foo
% echo different1 > two/foo
% rsync -n -v --itemize-changes -checksum -a one two
Here is the output generated by that last command:
sending incremental file list
I fail to see how this helps me to know that in this case the files
one/hello and two/hello are byte-for-byte identical AND also that
the contents of the files one/foo and two/foo are in fact different.
Where is the clear sign of a difference between the two "foo" files?
