Request for rsync network filesystem (nfs/cifs) booleans
Last modified: 2013-08-27 06:54:25 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #795474 +++
Description of problem: Currently rsync can either read rsync_t files or, with rsync_export_all_ro set, read just about anything. It would be nice to have the ability to easily enable reading of network mounts without opening up everything. Currently apache, ftp, cobbler, git, and qemu have similar booleans.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.12.1-71.fc19
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wish to share nfs or cifs volumes with rsync
2. notice the nice booleans for these other services
3. write up custom policy to replicate the behavior
either enable exporting everything or write custom policy
a boolean similar to apache, ftp, cobbler, git, and qemu
Additional info: The attached patch, while somewhat ugly, I believe adds this feature.

This is fine with me, I just added this access to Rawhide.
