Hi librsync devs,

I'm the new Debian maintainer of rdiff-backup which uses librsync1.
One bug report [1] complains of rdiff-backup dying while trying to
synchronize a file larger than 2GB.  I've confirmed this with the
latest versions of librsync1, rdiff, and rdiff-backup.  While
searching through the rdiff-backup-users archive, I came across this
message [2] from rdiff-backup's developer indicating that this problem
is one with librsync.  The error message thrown (listed in the bug
report) seems to back this up.

=46rom what I can tell, there seems to be a lull in development; are
there any plans to add support for large files in librsync?  I'd
submit a patch, but I'm not competent in C.

Thanks for your time,

Alec Berryman
