I think the point Dinesh is trying to make is that rsync is removing ACLs from
the destination even though it's not asked to preserve the source's ACLs (which
don't exist).

I think the problem is that rsync creates a new file on the destination. The
same thing will happen to any other metadata such as group or owner, if you
don't use -g or -o (the group and owner will become the user transferring the

Try using --inplace to update the existing file.

IMHO this is not a bug.
