I don't know when e.g. the US switches to DST (Daylight Savings Time), but
France did so yesterday.
You might want to check out a mail of JW's from Oct 2003 to make sure you're
not impacted if you backup to/from FAT/NTFS filesystems:
I got hit because I have a dual boot machine which has the hardware clock on
UTC. I run dirvish under Linux and backup part of the Windows ME FAT
filesystem (My Docs). rsync considered that all files had changed and
created a new copy of all files on the backup.
The fix was of course to add:
to the conf file for the MyDocs backup. Note that I don't need 3601": 3600"
is sufficient, since the *target* for the backup is a filesystem with
below-the-second timestamp accuracy).
