Hi Chess,
Thank you for creating such a useful tool. I really appreciate it.

I just wanted to let you know that the version of rsync that comes
with Slackware 12.0 (rsync-2.6.9-i486-2_slack12.0) does not support
the --contimeout option, generating an error when you select the
"Rsync" option in the sbopkg menu.

Apparently, this option was added to rsync in version 3.0.0pre6. You
can see it by visiting the Changelog:


and searching for "contimeout".

I am attaching a patch, but I'm not sure if I'm doing things
correctly. My bash-fu is not very good, I'm sorry.

Thank you!
