Hi Shachar,
I'm planning to use rsyncrypto in a new server. The problem with this is that some of the files in question are very often locked and typically have unusually long file names, which many times causes rsyncrypto to bail out.
In this case it would be ideal to have rsyncrypto output an error, but continue processing the files just the same.

I know you were planning to work on this, so just purely out of curiosity... when could we expect the next release of version 1 to be available more or less?

Best regards

Their list of technologies make the rsyncable claim questionable in my
mind, but I have not put them to the test yet.

It's fairly simple to test, really. Create a 100MB file from
/dev/urandom, sync it, add a couple of bytes (or 17 - a nice number of
making sure they are not doing block based encryption restarts)
somewhere around the beginning, and resync. If the resync takes as long
as the original (space or transit wise), then you know they do not live
up to their claims.
