Description Morgan Nilsson 2007-02-14 10:12:31 UTC
Description of problem:

rsync --delete --relative does not delete files.

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

rsync 2.6.8 fixed in 2.6.9.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. rsync -av --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded
--exclude-from=exclude host:/. backup_dir/

Actual results:

excluded files are not deleted in backup_dir

Expected results:

excluded files should be deleted in backup_dir

Additional info:

Fedora Core 6 uses rsync 2.6.8. 


    - Fixed a recent bug where --delete was not working when transferring from
      the root (/) of the filesystem with --relative enabled.

Could please Fedora consider updating rsync to 2.6.9?
