Description Alexandre Oliva 2002-04-01 13:28:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020314

Description of problem:
Transfers using the rsync:// protocol disregard the --rsh=prog option, and they
warn so.  However, this option also causes a hard error at the end of the transfer.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1./usr/bin/rsync -r rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/redhat/rawhide/RedHat/ RedHat/  #
will transfer only an empty directory, no worries
2./usr/bin/rsync -e ssh -r rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/redhat/rawhide/RedHat/
RedHat/ # error
3./usr/bin/rsync --rsh ssh -r rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/redhat/rawhide/RedHat/
RedHat/ # error

Actual Results:  1.Successful transfer of an empty RPMS directory.  Exit status
is 0.
2 and 3:
WARNING: --rsh or -e option ignored when connecting to rsync daemon
rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at main.c(893)

Exit status is non-zero.  Oops.

Expected Results:  The warning is appropriate, indeed, but the hard error is not.
