Will rsyncrypto change the ownership of the files?

And will it change the permissions?

I would like to do a full system backup with rsyncrypto, but I need to
keep the ownership and permissions.

At this point in time, rsyncrypto does not back up either permission or ownership. It is planned for the future, but with no definitive time frame.
