I know that the documentation talks about minuses in include lists, but I
suggest that you stay away from them: I feel that they mix up the
definition of an include list.

I suggest an include list like:

- and then an rdiff-backup command that goes like:
rdiff-backup --include-filelist includelist --exclude / \
  address@hidden::/ hostname

(The trailing \ on the first line of the command means that the command
goes on on the next line.)
