Thank you for the heads-up. Can someone advise me here? I am not
familiar with OS X and did not write the OS X code for the most part.
As I understand it, HPS allows access to the resource fork of file
"foobar" through reads/writes to "foobar/rsrc". And this is how
rdiff-backup detects, reads, and writes resource forks. If this no
longer works because of a change to Darwin/OS X then this part of
rdiff-backup obviously needs to be rewritten.
So anyone know how to fix this? Anyone actually want to fix it? :)
