Since the gwdg mirror uses rsync, too, I guess our rsync is working
correctly. Until now we never got any error reports and I never had
problems using it, too.

To double check you can try to rsync from our mirror:
rsync -l -rtzvP rsync://ftp.gwdg.de/FreeGIS/intevation/kolab/ your/target-dir

If this works, you can try our server:
rsync -l -rtzvP rsync://rsync.kolab.org/ftp/kolab/ your/target-dir

I just did a full rsync on the kolab tree from the same host without
problems, but I didn't test it over the internet.


P.S.: Please do all your tests within the next 20 hours, because the
server will be temporarily moved to a location with low bandwidth
(2Mbit compared to 34Mbit now) and higher traffic costs, see my
announcement on kolab-users.
