While my opinion of anon rsync vs anon cvs is probably well known,
this just isn't "quite" true.

Use the --delete option, i.e.  a form like:

    rsync -avz --delete    

to "clean out" the directory.  (of course, this might not be what you
really want to do :-).


p.s. Duncan, I've been hyper-occupied, but will fire off something
