Re: Efficient rsyncrypto hides remote sync data

This part was meant to refer to using gpg to encrypt files before syncing to the server. So it should read that GPG's changes to files foil rsync's efficiency. ie, a small change to a file that is GPG encrypted will result in large changes to the encrypted file which will spoil rsync's efficiency.
