Description Dave Yost 2008-07-28 21:53:17 UTC
It would be nice to be able to ask rsync to output its verbosity and progress information as xml, so that a GUI could easily parse the info and show it in a GUI.

As a maintainer of one of that rsync-using-GUIs I would find that also very nice.

But I don't see an advantage with XML. To complex and not human readable. Cost a lot of resources (think about sustainability) to parse.

For me JSON seems to me as a good minimal consent.
