Description Jari Aalto 2009-08-03 11:03:58 UTC
Cf. Debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/539777

Package: rsync
Version: 3.0.6-1
Severity: wishlist


Manual page reads:

       --skip-compress=LIST
	      ...
	
              The default list of suffixes that will not be compressed
              is this (several of these are newly added for 3.0.0):

                  gz/zip/z/rpm/deb/iso/bz2/t[gb]z/7z/mp[34]/mov/avi/ogg/jpg/jpeg

SUGGESTION

Please also add these compresser program extensions to the default
list:

*.lzo  	    lzop(1)
*.rzip	    rzip(1)
*.lzma	    lzma(1)
*.rar	    rar comressed
*.ace	    ace compressed

Archive can also be encrypted for backup purposes, so if possible
exclude also these extensions by default:

*.tar.gz.gpg
*.tar.bz2.gpg
*.tar.lzma.gpg
*.tar.lzop.gpg
Comment 1 Wayne Davison 2009-09-05 12:32:27 UTC
I have added the suffixes you suggested to the git repo for the upcoming 3.1.0 release.
