Hi all,

I ran into another bug. If I put comments in an include list, rdiff-backup generates an error. This is of course no problem. The rdiff-backup client simply exits with an error code of 1 and a message like:

Reading globbing filelist /etc/obrb/include.list
Fatal Error: Fatal Error: The file specification
cannot match any files in the base directory
Useful file specifications begin with the base directory or some
pattern (such as '**') which matches the base directory.

We can of course argue if comments should or should not be allowed in the include list, but so far I think the behaviour of rdiff-backup is correct. However, the server side of rdiff-backup exits with an exit code 0. I do not think that this should be the case, especially if you want to take some action (like generate an error report) from the remote server. This way we never know there was an error!
