The context here is that the log apply time
marks the point in /dist/replica/client/plan9.log
where the system is up-to-date. Future pulls
start there in the log. If you specify only a
subset of the files to pull then this time does
not get updated if there is a file in the remainder
of the log that would need to be copied but is not
specified in the list of files to process.
That prompts the question, where did I specify
a list of files to process? The answer is that
the argument you have given as /dist/replica/network
is the first non-option argument, so -s and 386/bin/aquarela
are taken as two more non-option arguments.
The correct command line is
replica/pull -v -s 386/bin/aquarela /dist/replica/network
pull -v -s 386/bin/aquarela
using /usr/glenda/bin/rc/pull. The latter exists mainly
so that you don't have to remember the former.
