    Hello,

    Is there a way to get s3cmd to not fuss over matching checksums on live log files and files that are constantly being written to? I realize that I can exclude them, but there are many of them that are dynamically created, I'd rather not list them individually.

    What I'm finding is that because more information is being written to the source file by the time the upload is complete, I get stuck in an endless loop of uploading the file over and over again until checksums match. If giving up after x number of failures is a possibility and just accepting what has been uploaded that is cool too, but what would be awesome is to perhaps skip the comparison of final checksums for certain directories.

    Has anybody else run into this problem? Any suggestions for techniques for working around this sort of problem?
