Description Wade Bowmer 2006-05-18 00:43:22 EDT
Description of problem:

rsync defaults to rsh for remote communication instead of ssh, like competing 
distros do.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

rsync -azv source/ user@host:dest/
... fails if dest doesn't allow rsh.

Required on RH:
rsync -azv -e ssh source/ user@host:dest/

Sufficient on other distros: (e.g. Debian)
rsync -azv source/ user@host:dest/

We don't change defaults in existing RHEL releases, would break existing working
