Hi Otto,

   ... not if your cronjob runs with 'umask 077', as it often does.

   I agree that the 'old' settings were not wrong in some cases.
   The point of the change is to prevent permission problems from
   occurring (as they now often do) by a more strict prescription of
   a setup that we think will always work, or at least more often.

     -rtlzv --delete -> -avz --delete --safe-symlinks

   Note: no 'p' in the 'old' ; in 'new', 'p' is implied by '-a'.
   Anyway, '-a' is what you want for mirrors, so why use some-
   thing else ?
