+# Rsync options are:
+# -p - preserve permissions
+# -o - preserve owner
+# -g - preserve group
+# -h - output in human-readable format
+# --progress - display progress
+# -b - instead of just overwriting an existing file, save the original
+# --backup-dir=/tmp/rsync - move backup copies to "/tmp/rsync"
+# -e /dev/null - only work on local files
+# -- - everything after this is an argument, even if it looks like an option
