            Bug ID: 14319
           Summary: -M--fake-super --chmod  changes the permissions stored
                    in the xattr
           Product: rsync

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5

I want to save the original permissions in the xattr, in order to have a proper
backup, but set a custom mode of g+rX to the files.

It seems there is no way to separate the permissions stored in the xattr to the
real permissions. Rsync will always store the same in both places. I have tried
different combinations of --fake-super --perms --chmod with no success.

I brought up the issue here:
