DO NOT REPLY [Bug 5867] New: rsync with ACLs resets mtime on targets
Summary: rsync with ACLs resets mtime on targets
On FreeBSD (v6 and v7), rsync (v3.0.4) with the extented ACLs patch has a
The ACLs flag works, but when it is used, the mtime of the files on on the
receiving system are set to the current time. This is a bit annoying in
itself, but creates a larger problem because any later rsync actions on the
same files see the files as _different_, meaning that _all_ the files are
recopied -- which more or less defeats the purpose of using rsync.
Yes, I understand that setting ACLs on a file changes the mtime of the file.
But, as rsync is able to (re)set mtimes I would think that this shouldn't
should be an issue when using rsync.
After some searching around, I found some discussion (relating to Macs,
actually) that suggests that the problem is that with the ACLs patch enabled,
rsync modifies the ACLs on the target files _after_ setting the mtime, which
seems to me (at least) to be a bug.
