There is no file "samba_3_0_ctdb" in the "unpacked" directory, as you can see
if you do:
It's no fault of rsync that it can't magically create files on remote servers...
You need to report that to the samba team. Sending email to the mentioned contact in the rsync motd output you cited, or to firstname.lastname@example.org are additional things to try to get the page you cited fixed.
It works now, can somebody check again and closes this?
It still does not work, because the folder is still not there. Don't know what Mathieu Parent is talking about.
Closing this bug as fixed. It was a documentation bug on the website referring to 3_0_ctdb. This just does not exist anymore, all patches are upstream as of 3.3.
