It should just be:
Note the double ":" at the end. For instance running it against
www.debian.org will give you this:
jesse@mymachine:~/cop2220$ rsync www.debian.org::
web.debian.org Debian Web Site
The actual module is the first part. The second part is a description. Then
you just run your script using --dry-run and inspect the output. I like to
redirect it to a file, then figure out what I want and what I don't want.
I'm not sure if I totally understand the module thing myself. I'm
considering setting up an rsync server on my lan and experimenting. That's
probably the best way to learn anyway (man rsyncd.conf).
