Description of problem:
Lately, EPEL switched from rsnapshot 1.3.x to the newer 1.4.x
While being actively maintained and providing some new features, v1.4.x has some serious problems which made the previous version the better one, until these issues are solved.
Two issues are of major concern:
#166, logs are not shown how they should, https://github.com/rsnapshot/rsnapshot/issues/166
#167, warnings are not printed to stderr nor on log files (until very high verbosity is selected), https://github.com/rsnapshot/rsnapshot/issues/167
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
See the above links to gihub issues
Steps to Reproduce:
1. as above
1. for issue #166, even selecting loglevel 5 no rsync logs are shown in the log file
2. for issue #167, no warnings are shown on stderr or logfile (when loglevel < 5) when rsync report a non-fatal error/exit code (eg: 24)
1. loglevel 3+ should write rsync logs in the log file, as it happens in the previous version
2. according to documentation (and to previous rsnapshot version), warnings should be printed on stderr
The older version will not be built as it is no longer maintained.
Hi, while I understand that 1.3.x is an old version, the newer 1.4.x has serious flaws that make it unsuitable for production work.
I strongly suggest to revert to 1.3.x and, when #166 and #167 will be solved, to upgrade to 1.4.x
