Rsync uses a quick and reliable algorithm to very quickly bring remote and host files into sync. Rsync is fast because it just sends the differences in the files over the network (instead of sending the complete files). Rsync is often used as a very powerful mirroring process or just as a more capable replacement for the rcp command. A technical report which describes the rsync algorithm is included in this package. Install rsync if you need a powerful mirroring program. This rpm has these patches applied from rsync tree: - acl: allow to mirror acl Rebuild the source rpm with `--without patches' if you don't want these patches
