- Subject: rsync's --delete and --exclude option
When you use rsync with option --delete and --exclude (for example
exclude='*.bak') then rsync will exclude such files from source and
destination and hence also not delete *.bak files on the destination.
However, would it be possible to still make rsync delete such excluded files
on the destination?
For example, when have source and destination rsynced hosts which thousands
of files and you decide to add more excludes, it'd be nice to let delete now
unused files on the destination, too, even if their source counterparts are
now on the exclude list.
