very nice!  will immediatelly switch to rsync operation.  however, i'll have to find out how to generate the supfile for cvsupd serving...

    Minor issue, but it would be nice if I could get statistics on
I have this in my rsyncd.conf:

syslog facility = local5
transfer logging = yes
and in syslog.conf

local5.*                                        /var/log/rsyncd.log

(obviously could be made better)
