I have released rsync version 3.2.5pre1 for release testing. This includes
a checksum fix that affects some architectures (such as ARM), improves the
security of the received file list, enhances the manpage, etc.

I'd really appreciate it if people would give this release some extensive
testing and see if the improved security results in any false alerts. I did
a bunch of testing and found a few options that caused a problem (and were
then fixed), but there may be more.  You can use a side-effect of the
option <> to work
around an invalid complaint, but please also report it.  Thanks!
