Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : rsync
Version     : 2.6.9
Release     : 1.FC5.1
Summary     : A program for synchronizing files over a network.
Description :
Rsync uses a reliable algorithm to bring remote and host files into
sync very quickly. 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

Update Information:

Fix bug 228666:
rsync --delete --relative does not delete files.

Fix bug 206536:
Fixed a bug where a deferred info/error/log message could
get sent directly to the sender instead of being handled by
rwrite() in the generator.

Fix other bugs as well see upstream NEWS report
