Summary: rsync without --verbose still writes "(new) backup_dir
is ..." to STDOUT
Assignee: [hidden email] Reporter: [hidden email] QA Contact: [hidden email]
rsync always writes "(new) backup_dir is ..." to STDOUT. Is this really
rsync -a --delete --backup --backup-dir="_before-$(date +%F)" $source $dest
(new) backup_dir is _before-2016-03-27
This seems to have appeared in 3.1.1, which created the directory even if it
was not needed (see bug #11423).
Version 3.1.2 doesn't create useless backup-dirs any more, but if it does it
reports it to STDOUT which is also quite useless. We have --verbose when we
want to check what is going on. If everything works alright, I feel that rsync
without -v should remain silent, as is customary in Unix tools.
