No Localisation for rsync?

Hi Folks,

There are no Localisation features incorporated in the rsync code, from what
I can see, and hence no Language Translation files.

I see pertinent strings, in the "main.c" (output_summary function) and
"flist.c" files, which are used by the rprintf function.

I could use xgettext with "rprintf" as the function search parameter to
produce a .pot file.

Are there any other files that contain strings for the output of progress
messages that I should look at?

Thanks, Michael.

rsync - Management of UIDs and GIDs when reserved on a Remote system

Hi Wayne et al,

I've been using Linux for a little over a year now.

I'm making improvements to the English phrasing used by luckyBackup which
uses rsync. English is my first language and I'm doing this so that I can,
then, more accurately make translations for the Spanish language.

I would like to know how rsync would manage the situation where the UID and
GID(s), of a file being copied to a Remote system, have been reserved on the
Remote system. Does rsync search for and allocate the next available IDs?

If so, how would a Restore operation function? Can rsync create a log,
during a Backup, to record the newly allocated IDs, on the Remote system, so
that they can be mapped back to the Source system?

Thanks, Michael.

mtime not updating on remote directory

Hello,

I'm using rsync as part of a centralised config management for several servers.  I'm trying to monitor the
mtime of a particular directory and confirm that the remote copies are approximately as new as the the
local master.  However, mtime on that directory is not being synced.  Here's my rsync command:

cd $confdir && rsync -avpzR --checksum -I -e "ssh" --exclude='old/' ./* user <at> remotehost:/

My impression is that this should sync mtime to the remote dir, if that mtime has changed locally.  However
that's not happening.  It doesn't seem to me that any of my options implies --omit-dir-times, but maybe I'm
missing something - Any clues?

Thanks in advance!
tom

feature request: rsync dereference symlinks on cmdline

This post

http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/153262/get-rsync-to-dereference-symlinked-dirs-presented-on-cmdline-like-find-h

explains most of what i want, but basically, looking for a find -H option to rsync.

Reason is so that I can hit a source (or target!) dir in rsync by making a nice
dir of symlink maps.

For eg openVZ names their containers with ID#s which isnt very condusive to
careful handling/recognition:

100/ 101/ 102/ 103/ 

etc

Id like to create a dir of symlinks, a map (I think this would work on the 
target too?)

customer1 -> ../production/100
customer2 -> ../production/101
customer3 -> ../production/102

and have rsync write dirs

customer1/ customer2/ customer3/ 

in the target.

Obviously I could do this by iterating over the source's 100 101 102 adnd

Reproducer/test case

If I just pass --exclude=file or --exclude=dir to rsync, the file or dir is
excluded correctly.

However, if you pass a list of files in --files-from= that includes the file I
want to exclude, then only --exclude=file works as before; --exclude=dir
doesn't seem to do anything at all.

As a workaround, I've found that --exclude=dir/** will actually exclude dir, as
I originally wanted.

Options for a "I'm done" flag file

As part of my backup system, I use Rsync to keep a copy of each server on one central backup server. This backup
server then uses StoreBackup to keep multiple iterations of each clone directory.
So that the StoreBackup archives don't keep adding "redundant" and misleading backups, I update a flag
file with the current date/time before doing the Rsync update, and test to see if this file is newer than the
one in the latest StoreBackup backup. If it isn't, then I skip the StoreBackup for that server.

The end result is that if a system is down or out of communication (one or two are at sites that can be offline
for days), then the list of backups in StoreBackup will reflect that. Eg, if the system did a sync on the 1st,
but not on 2nd - 5th, then there will be no backups for 2nd-5th, and when looking later I won't be "fooled"
into thinking that I have a backup from (say) the 4th.

Where this breaks down is if the sync fails part way through. The flag file has already been synced, so I have
multiple backups which aren't actually complete.
I actually have this at the moment. Just put a small system on a customer site, it has a database that creates
1GB journal files (not that it handles anything like that volume of data), and at the moment their
connectivity is a bit flakey.

My first thought was "do the flag file last", but a quick search confirms what I thought - that there isn't an
option for this.

So, does anyone have any suggestions how I might reasonably easily get the ability for my script to see if the
previous sync completed ?
