(From Arch Linux) rsync compatibility
(2020-01-15, by Christian Hesse)
(This is relevant on Manjaro, as Manjaro imports
rsync package directly from Arch Linux.)
rsync package was shipped with bundled
zlib to provide compatibility with the old-style
--compress option up to version 3.1.0. Version 3.1.1 was released on 2014-06-22 and is shipped by all major distributions now.
So we decided to finally drop the bundled library and ship a package with system
zlib . This also fixes security issues, actual ones and in future. Go and blame those running old versions if you encounter errors with
rsync 3.1.3-3 .

You can find other packages that need to be rebuilt by looking at the folders/files in
