21 I'm reading this list for a long rime, so I'm quiet acquainted with this
22 level of friendliness. So do not mind.
24 I've wrote this list because potential changes I want to do include
25 adding of new USE_EXPAND that should be discussed here anyway. And there
26 can be reasons why this have not done, that I'm not aware of, and
27 maintainer of rsync or somebody else could comment here.
29 Anyway I still have not ended with those changes and hence still have
30 not posted a bug. So do not mind once again. ;-)
