The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2427
--dry-run (-n) ignores --log-format
Last modified: 2005-04-01 11:21:18 UTC
--log-format is ignored during dry runs.
For the purposes of testing programs that read the output of rsync, it would be
helpful to include this feature.
This is one of the fixed things in 2.6.4, now in pre-release testing.
