Description Jan ONDREJ 2009-04-06 11:07:27 UTC
Description of problem:
Can you please add this patch:
  patches/copy-devices.diff
as a part of binary rpm? This patch is already in src.rpm (in patches tar).
This patch allows rsyncing device content, instead of default device special device.
I need this option in my project, which backup systems over network and can rsync device content with only minimal changes.
This change can significatly increase speed of my script, which currently need to copy everything (dd) over network.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rsync-3.0.5-1.fc10.i386


How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rsync --copy-devices
  
Actual results:
rsync: --copy-devices: unknown option
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1423) [client=3.0.5]
:-)

Expected results:
Working device rsync copy.

Additional info:
Please, if possible, do this change for F9 and F10 too, not only for rawhide.

To apply this patch, it's enough to add this line after your patches:
  patch -p1 -i patches/copy-devices.diff

Simo, is there something wrong with this patch?

If not and you are too busy, I can apply it in fedora CVS.
