Description Steven H. Levine 2008-04-17 12:33:27 UTC
Porting to platforms without true stat() support would be simpler if getpassf() (authentic.c) honored the strict modes option.  The code would be similar to the existing code in get_secret().
Comment 1 Wayne Davison 2008-04-17 12:48:04 UTC
The strict-modes setting is a daemon setting.  The getpassf() function is a client function, so the two are not related.

It might be nice to have a way to make the client strict -- perhaps a configure option.

Oops, I forgot to consider that this was a client side issue.

A configure option would be handy.  For now, we will just patch it out with an #ifdef.

In case you would like to add the OS/2 port to your list of available binaries, it can be found at

This was reported to the rsync team as


As was pointed out by the maintainers, I goofed on my suggested fix.  What's really needed is to #ifdef the code based on a configure variable.  If might be sufficient to just use __OS2__.
