I am sorry but I am not understanding.  Step 10.b says:

        10.b Make sure the new standby data directories do not exist
        Make sure the new standby data directories do not exist or are empty. If
        initdb was run, delete the standby server data directories.

so the _entire_ new data directory is empty before rsync is run, meaning
that it is an exact copy of the new master.
