Now :

Using D:\TeX\Live\2015\Pretest>c:\deltacopy\rsync -a --delete
--exclude="mactex*" rsync://ftp.cstug.cz::pub/tex/local/tlpretest

Rsync appears to have done nothing for at least 12 hours; it just sits
there, and the file count remains constant at 9542; how is one meant to
know when Rsync has done its work and it is therefore safe to start
installation ?
