            Bug ID: 13139
           Summary: Formatted output turned off when --link-dest is used
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: wayned at samba.org
          Reporter: mruprich at redhat.com
        QA Contact: rsync-qa at samba.org

If I use rsync with --link-dest and --out-format, no output gets printed. I've
done some debugging and when I use the --link-dest, the log_item and
log_formatted functions from rsync are skipped altogether. 

Example command:
rsync -H --link-dest=/tmp/test_sync/directory_a --out-format="<<CHANGED>>%i
%n%L" /tmp/test_sync/directory_a/foo.txt /tmp/test_sync/directory_b/foo.txt

The files get synced but there is no output produced.
