Binary package hint: rsync

Currently Hardy ships with rsync 2.6.9, but we were having issues with that version that are confirmed to be fixed in rsync 3.0.0. When transferring a lot of really small files, we could reliably trigger a drop in the rsync sync process, disabling us from finishing the rsync. We upgraded to rsync 3.0 and all our problems were fixed. 3.0 has an updated protocol which seems to solve this problem. Using rsync 3.0 with the old protocol forced still causes the faulty behaviour. It would be really beneficial for us at least to have the latest version of rsync available in Hardy..

Thanks!
