NAME

cdist-type__rsync - Mirror directories using rsync

DESCRIPTION

WARNING: This type is of BETA quality: · it has not been tested widely · interfaces may change · if there is a better approach to solve the problem -> the type may even vanish If you are fine with these constraints, please read on. This cdist type allows you to mirror local directories to the target host using rsync. Rsync will be installed in the manifest of the type. If group or owner are giveng, a recursive chown will be executed on the target host. A slash will be appended to the source directory so that only the contents of the direc‐ tory are taken and not the directory name itself.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS
