Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2013-08-29 10:22:44 EDT
Fix also included in libguestfs-1.20.10-4.el6 (note
there is no separate bug for RHEL 6, I just included
the fix in the routine build).
Comment 4 bfan 2013-12-03 04:17:52 EST
Verified with libguestfs-1.22.6-16.el7.x86_64

><fs> help rsync-out

    Globbing does not happen on the "src" parameter. In programs which use
    the API directly you have to expand wildcards yourself (see
    "glob_expand"). In guestfish you can use the "glob" command (see "glob"
    in guestfish(1)), for example:

     ><fs> glob rsync-out /* rsync://remote/

Help out is update.
