Quick intro: I’m a port/platform maintainer for a variety of HPE NonStop Open Source ports including rsync, git, and a few others, and have been in the industry for far too long.
Our port is currently at commit 1f83b51, which I’m planning to upgrade to 7706303 in the next few days. We had been able to stay on vanilla code until 1f83b51 when we had to introduce a SUPERUSER #define because root on our platform is not 0. We would like to contribute this back at some point.
Quick question: there has not been an officially tagged version for rsync in a while, which makes putting out fixes a bit aweward in our community (responses like “You’re *still* at 3.1.3-DEV, shouldn’t the numbers bump?). So I’m wondering when the next fix number will be official, like 3.1.4, which will make those who monitor CVEs on our platform much happier because we can release it.
