Description Bill C Riemers 2008-06-11 22:07:25 UTC
With the git source, the -X flag no-longer works.  I suspect this problem was introduced fixing bug #5526.

For a simple test case try:

sudo mkdir /var2
sudo rsync -aX --link-dest=/var /var/. /var2/.
ls -laZ /var2

You should see that /var2 does not have the correct xattributes.

This bug has been around since 3.0.0, so no, it's not recently introduced.  I should have it fixed soon.

The fix for this was committed to the git repository, and is available in the most recently "nightly" tar file.
