Yes. The precise sequence depends on lots of (combinations of) options, but in many cases rsync creates directories with permissions 0700 (u=rwx), then fills in the contents, then sets xattrs, timestamps and permissions/acls to the correct values after all transfers are done. .Dave. -- Please use reply-all for most replies to avoid omitting the mailing list.
