Hi everyone,

As rsnapshot tries to take on more and more features and work around
more and more bugs and quirks in the underlying programs and
environments, it is becoming more unwieldy.

As of today, I recommend going back to rsnapshot 1.2.1. In addition,
you should ideally:
use --relative when performing snapshots (the default since
rsnapshot 1.2.0)

use the very latest stable version of rsync, which does not have
the bug which causes old files not to be deleted from the snapshot root.

Sorry about the confusion on this. I'll try to release a Grand Unified
Release which fixes and/or works around all of these issues at some point.
