Don't use "-C" in rsync exclusion pattern; it excludes too much

    What does it exclude that you don't want to exclude?

    The manpage on my system mentiones

    RCS SCCS CVS CVS.adm RCSLOG cvslog.* tags TAGS .make.state .nse_depinfo *~

    1. * .#* ,* _$* *$ *.old *.bak *.BAK *.orig *.rej .del-* *.a *.olb *.o *.obj
    • .so *.exe *.Z *.elc *.ln core .svn/ .git/ .bzr/

    plus a few special cases involving .cvsignore directories which we are not likely using, are we?

    I don't like the pattern *.old; I have an arrangement called *.old that is now only copied to machines that use rsync 2.x.
