my thinking was, include everything and exclude some parts like i would
do with rsync.

That option needs to be "--exclude-globbing-filelist", and you need
to get rid of that "/" at the end of "extensions/".

the first run did show "extensions". maybe rdiff was just removing it from the new backup
thank you very much.
