Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Not sure why this needs to go in for 6.3 as what the book has now
 works for all applications that require it already. I've been sort
 of waiting for the existing tickets to get taken care of so we can
 get a release candidate going.

 Piling on new package updates just slows the process. Your call,
 Dan, but sooner or later we have to draw the line and say "let's
 go with what we have".

 The Rsync update is different to me in that it is a single application
 that relies on nothing, and nothing relies on it.

 If you can get it in (you already have three tickets slated for 6.3)
 and you are 100% confident that it is a total drop-in replacement
 that won't affect any of the existing packages in the book (some of
 which are getting quite old), then great. If there is any doubt
 however, it doesn't make any sense to update something that we know
 works as it stands.
