            Bug ID: 13587
           Summary: Add a --dry-run way to show destination for each item
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: wayned at samba.org

        QA Contact: rsync-qa at samba.org

User very much wants to know where the files _will go_ before daring to try an
actual run.

He tries even
rsync -vv --dry-run --itemize-changes -avz x.y.z:dir1/dir2/backup/ backup/

but still there is no way to make it say
File x.y.z:dir1/dir2/backup/F1 will be copied to backup/F1
File x.y.z:dir1/dir2/backup/F2 will be copied to backup/F2
