Description Chris Adams 2011-08-12 15:09:16 UTC
The upgraded rsync 3.0.6 in RHEL 5.7 is mixing a bug fix for the --fake-super option.  See RH Bugzilla 542679 for the info and patch (that has been in Fedora for a long time now).

Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2011-08-15 09:51:25 UTC
Thanks for report, as this option was added in 3.0.0, it is not a regression caused by the rebase to rsync-3.0.6 - so RHEL-5 customers probably don't rely on this option. Anyway - keeping this bugzilla opened so it could be fixed eventually in next rsync update.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-09-23 00:28:27 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for

Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support

in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This Bugzilla has been reviewed by Red Hat and is not planned on being
addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore will be closed.
If this bug is critical to production systems, please contact your Red
Hat support representative and provide sufficient business
justification. Issue is already fixed in RHEL-6/7.
