I use .sync suffix to mark the folders in my ~/ that need syncing.
syncing source user@host:/home/user/*.sync to dest /home/user/ works OK.
syncing source /home/user/*.sync to dest user@host:/home/user/ fails with:
rsync: link_stat "/home/user/*.sync" failed: No such file or directory (2)
while this works OK in terminal:
rsync -av /home/user/*.sync user@host:/home/user/

I also attach Russian .po file with some minor corrections and few sugnificant (symlinks and hardlinks were both translated as symlinks there).

    hello,

    thanks for the updated translation.
    what you are trying to do doesn't work because wildcards are not expanded: it's the shell that does it, not rsync, that's why it works on a terminal and on the remote side (it all runs through a remote shell in that case).
    wildcards on local side is in my todo list, so I'll mark this as a duplicate feature request. it's not trivial to implement, that's why it's still pending.
