Description Matt McCutchen 2006-08-26 11:53:42 UTC
It would be nice if repeating the --fuzzy option made rsync search for fuzzy basis files for a destination file in --*-dest directories as well as the same directory as the destination file.
Comment 1 Matt McCutchen 2009-11-12 22:16:45 UTC
For reference, this arose from bug 3392; I'm not advocating it myself.  (I regret the noise; I think it's important to have a complete record and wish I could achieve that more quietly.)
Comment 2 Wayne Davison 2011-11-23 20:40:57 UTC
I have implemented this repeating of --fuzzy to have rsync scan in the alt-dest dirs too.
