Description dennylin93 2010-06-14 06:27:45 UTC
When rsync checks the list of suffixes, they are case sensitive meaning that files such as *.JPG will still get compressed.

Attached patch makes the check case insensitive.

Thanks for the patch to fix this oversight!  I've checked this into the master branch of the git repo.

Thanks for the patch.
However, I was wondering if it was implemented in my rsync version of not.
I got the source in order to see if it was in my rsync or not.

Can you add a little comment about this in the man page ?

Thanks in advance,

It will be fixed in 3.0.8.
