I see that the write-devices.diff is in the rsync-patches-3.1.3.tar.gz but this bug is still in NEW state. Does that mean that the patch should not be used? What is the relationship between the rsync.git and rsync-patches.git?

the patches repo is where unmerged patches are tracked, stored, and re-baselined. Not sure how to tickle Wayne Davison to test it. It has worked very nicely here.
Comment 4 Wayne Davison 2020-04-05 18:45:06 UTC
I've refined the old write-devices.diff from the patches repo and included it for the upcoming release.
