      Description

      There's a common problem that many people face when building a single cvmfs repository from multiple sources: they want to use rsync to copy in files, but .cvmfscatalog files exist only in the repository and not in the source directories. If a directory containing a .cvmfscatalog is deleted from the source, then rsync can't delete the directory because of the --exclude .cvmfscatalog. I plan to make an rsync wrapper script called "cvmfsrsync" to make this problem easier, and put it in the cvmfs-server package.

      This was discussed on cvmfs-talk
