Description of problem:
When connecting to older rsync daemons, specifically while using at least the -C option, the following 
error is displayed and rsync exits:

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

This bug is so old and addressed in public by the rsync maintainer.
I assume therefore it is fixed in current releases.
Please reopen a bug if this is not true.
