even after reading  I keep wondering what happens if a user syncs
against our Gentoo e.V. rsync1 mirror while that one is syncing itself
against the master server. With bad luck a user may end up with mixed
files from before and after the sync (i.e. an inconsistent, possibly
broken tree), or not?
If so what would be a good way to prevent this?
How bad would shutting rsyncd down for the moment and bringing it back
up after be? Is there a cleaner solution to this?
Thanks in advance,
