Updated net/unison to latest version, 2.48.15.

I can't find a good changelog, but upstream changes seem to be fairly

A lot of local patches have been added to ensure compatibility with the
latest version of OCaml and lablgtk, and I have cleaned up the package
Makefile a little.

Update to 2.48.3:

Changes in Version 2.48.3

   Changes since 2.45:
     * Incorporated a patch from Christopher Zimmermann to replace the
       Uprintf module (which doesn't work with OCaml 4.02, causing Unison
       to crash) with equivalent functionality from the standard library.
     * Incorporated a refresh of the OSX GUI, contributed by Alan Shutko.
     * Added a maxsizethreshold option, which prevents the transfer of
       files larger than the size specified (in Kb).
     * Added a "copyonconflict" preference, to make a copy of files that
       would otherwise be overwritten or deleted in case of conflicting
       changes. (This makes it possible to automatically resolve conflicts
       in a fairly safe way when synchronizing continuously, in
       combination with the "repeat = watch" and "prefer = newer"
     * File system monitoring:
          + The file watcher now fails when unable to watch a directory,
            rather than silently ignoring the issue.
          + File system monitoring: more robust communication with the
            helper program (in socket mode, the unison server will still
            work properly despite unexpected unison client
          + A bytecode version of unison-fsmonitor is now produced by
            "make NATIVE=false"
          + Improved search for unison-fsmonitor
          + Detect when the helper process exits.
          + More robust file watching helper programs for Windows and
            Linux. They communicate with Unison through pipes (Unison
            redirects stdin and stdout), using a race-free protocol.
          + Retries paths with failures using an exponential backoff
          + The information returned by the file watchers are used
            independently for each replica; thus, when only one replica
            has changes, Unison will only rescan this replica.
          + When available, used by the graphical UIs to speed up
            rescanning (can be disabled by setting the new watch
            preference to
          + Small fix to the way gets invoked when using the
            file watching functionality, suggested by Josh Berdine. Unison
            will now look for in the same directory where the
            Unison executable itself lives.
     * Minor:
          + Fixed a bug in export procedure that was messing up
            documentation strings.
          + Incorporated a patch from Iryossy Knoblauch Art to make
            temp file names fit within 143 characters (to make eCryptFS
          + Added a string to the Conflict direction to document the
            reason of the conflict.
          + Log conflicts and problems in the text UI even if nothing is
          + Use hash function from OCaml 3.x for comparing archives, even
            when compiled with OCaml 4.x.
          + Do not restart Unison in case of uncaught exception when the
            repeat preference is set. This seems safer. And it does not
            work, for instance, in case of lost connection.
          + Fix Unix.readlink invalid argument error under Windows
          + Fix a crash when the output of the diff program is too large.
          + Fixed Makefile for cross-compiling towards Windows (updated to

   Changes since 2.40.63:
     * New preference fastercheckUNSAFE, which can be used (with care!) to
       achieve much faster update detection when all the common files in
       the two replicas are known to be identical. See the manual for more
       This feature should still be considered experimental, but it's
       ready for other people to try out.
     * Added option clientHostName. If specified, it will be used to as
       the client host name, overriding UNISONLOCALHOSTNAME and the actual
       host name.
     * OS X GUI:
          + fix crash under Lion, because of problems with the toolbar,
            using the fix suggested in
          + uimacnew09 is now the standard graphical interface on OSX
          + A small improvement to the uimacnew09 interface from Alan
            Schmitt and Steve Kalkwarf: when Unison is run with the -batch
            flag, the interface will now automatically propagate changes
            and terminate, without waiting for user interaction.
          + Show a modal warning window if there is no archive for the
            hosts. The user can then choose to exit or proceed (proceed is
            the default). The window is not shown if the batch preference
            is true.
          + file details panel selectable
     * GTK GUI:
          + New version of from Matt Zagrabelny that reorganizes
            the icons in a slightly more intuitive way.
     * Minor fixes:
          + Setting the prefer preference to older or newer now propagates
            deletions when there is no conflict.
          + Correctly quote the path when running merge commands.
          + Add quotes to paths when calling external file watcher
          + Incorporate a patch to (the external filewatcher
            utility) from Tomasz Zernicki to make it work better under
          + Incorporated new version of from Christophe Gohle
          + Fixed incompatibility with OpenSSH 5.6.
          + Fixed fingerprint cache: do not cache file properties
          + Some spelling corrections in documentation and comments from
            Stephane Glondu
          + Fixed O_APPEND mode for open under Windows
          + Fixed String.sub invalid argument error when an AppleDouble
            file does not contain a finder information field
          + Trim duplicate paths when using "-repeat watch"
          + Unison now passes path arguments and -follow directives to
   This seems to work except for one small issue
            with how treats -follow directives for
            directories that don't exist (or maybe this is an issue with
            how it treats any kind of monitoring when the thing being
            monitored doesn't exist?). If we create a symlink to a
            nonexistant directory, give Unison (hence a
            'follow' directive for the symlink, start unison, and then
            create the directory, misses the change.
          + Lines added in profile files by unison always start at a new

Changes in Version 2.40.61

   Changes since 2.40.1:
     * Added "BelowPath" patterns, that match a path as well as all paths
       below (convenient to use with nodeletion,update,creationpartial
     * Added a "fat" preference that makes Unison use the right options
       when one of the replica is on a FAT filesystem.
     * Allow "prefer/force=newer" even when not synchronizing
       modification times. (The reconciler will not be aware of the
       modification time of unchanged files, so the synchronization
       choices of Unison can be different from when "times=true", but the
       behavior remains sane: changed files with the most recent
       modification time will be propagated.)
     * Minor fixes and improvements:
          + Compare filenames up to decomposition in case sensitive mode
            when one host is running MacOSX and the unicode preference is
            set to true.
          + Rsync: somewhat faster compressor
          + Make Unicode the default on all architectures (it was only
            the default when a Mac OS X or Windows machine was involved).

   Changes since 2.32:
     * Major enhancement: Unicode support.
          + Unison should now handle unicode filenames correctly on all
          + This functionality is controlled by a new preference unicode.
          + Unicode mode is now the default when one of the hosts is
            under Windows or MacOS. This may make upgrades a bit more
            painful (the archives cannot be reused), but this is a much
            saner default.
     * Partial transfer of directories. If an error occurs while
       transferring a directory, the part transferred so far is copied
       into place (and the archives are updated accordingly). The
       "maxerrors" preference controls how many transfer error Unison
       will accept before stopping the transfer of a directory (by
       default, only one). This makes it possible to transfer most of a
       directory even if there are some errors. Currently, only the first
       error is reported by the GUIs.
       Also, allow partial transfer of a directory when there was an
       error deep inside this directory during update detection. At the
       moment, this is only activated with the text and GTK UIs, which
       have been modified so that they show that the transfer is going to
       be partial and so that they can display all errors.
     * Improvement to the code for resuming directory transfers:
          + if a file was not correctly transferred (or the source has
            been modified since, with unchanged size), Unison performs a
            new transfer rather than failing
          + spurious files are deleted (this can happen if a file is
            deleted on the source replica before resuming the transfer;
            not deleting the file would result in it reappearing on the
            target replica)
     * Experimental streaming protocol for transferring file contents
       (can be disabled by setting the directive "stream" to false): file
       contents is transfered asynchronously (without waiting for a
       response from the destination after each chunk sent) rather than
       using the synchronous RPC mechanism. As a consequence:
          + Unison now transfers the contents of a single file at a time
            (Unison used to transfer several contents simultaneously in
            order to hide the connection latency.)
          + the transfer of large files uses the full available bandwidth
            and is not slowed done due to the connection latency anymore
          + we get performance improvement for small files as well by
            scheduling many files simultaneously (as scheduling a file
            for transfer consume little ressource: it does not mean
            allocating a large buffer anymore)
     * Changes to the internal implementation of the rsync algorithm:
          + use longer blocks for large files (the size of a block is the
            square root of the size of the file for large files);
          + transmit less checksum information per block (we still have
            less than one chance in a hundred million of transferring a
            file incorrectly, and Unison will catch any transfer error
            when fingerprinting the whole file)
          + avoid transfer overhead (which was 4 bytes per block)
       For a 1G file, the first optimization saves a factor 50 on the
       amount of data transferred from the target to the source (blocks
       are 32768 bytes rather than just 700 bytes). The two other
       optimizations save another factor of 2 (from 24 bytes per block
       down to 10).
     * Implemented an on-disk file fingerprint cache to speed-up update
       detection after a crash: this way, Unison does not have do
       recompute all the file fingerprints from scratch.
          + When Unison detects that the archive case-sensitivity mode
            does not match the current settings, it populates the
            fingerprint cache using the archive contents. This way,
            changing the case-sensitivity mode should be reasonably fast.
     * New preferences "noupdate=root", "nodeletion=root",
       "nocreation=root" that prevent Unison from performing files
       updates, deletions or creations on the given root. Also 'partial'
       versions of 'noupdate', 'nodeletion' and 'nocreation'
     * Limit the number of simultaneous external copy program ("copymax"
     * New "links" preference. When set to false, Unison will report an
       error on symlinks during update detection. (This is the default
       when one host is running Windows but not Cygwin.) This is better
       than failing during propagation.
     * Added a preference "halfduplex" to force half-duplex communication
       with the server. This may be useful on unreliable links (as a more
       efficient alternative to "maxthreads = 1").
     * Renamed preference "pretendwin" to "ignoreinodenumbers" (an alias
       is kept for backwards compatibility).
     * Ignore one-second differences when synchronizing modification
       time. (Technically, this is an incompatible archive format change,
       but it is backward compatible. To trigger a problem, a user would
       have to synchronize modification times on a filesystem with a
       two-second granularity and then downgrade to a previous version of
       Unison, which does not work well in such a case. Thus, it does not
       seem worthwhile to increment the archive format number, which
       would impact all users.)
     * Do not keep many files simultaneously opened anymore when the
       rsync algorithm is in use.
     * Add "ignorearchives" preference to ignore existing archives (to
       avoid forcing users to delete them manually, in situations where
       one archive has gotten deleted or corrupted).
     * Mac OS
          + fixed rsync bug which could result in an "index out of
            bounds" error when transferring resource forks.
          + Fixed bug which made Unison ignore finder information and
            resource fork when compiled to 64bit on Mac OSX.
          + should now be 64 bit clean (the Growl framework is not up to
            date, though)
          + Made the bridge between Objective C and Ocaml code GC
            friendly (it was allocating ML values and putting them in an
            array which was not registered with the GC)
          + use darker grey arrows (patch contributed by Eric Y. Kow)
     * GTK user interface
          + assistant for creating profiles
          + profile editor
          + pop up a summary window when the replicas are not fully
            synchronized after transport
          + display estimated remaining time and transfer rate on the
            progress bar
          + allow simultaneous selection of several items
          + Do not reload the preference file before a new update
            detection if it is unchanged
          + disabled scrolling to the first unfinished item during
            transport. It goes way too fast when lot of small files are
            synchronized, and it makes it impossible to browse the file
            list during transport.
          + take into account the "height" preference again
          + the internal list of selected reconciler item was not always
            in sync with what was displayed (GTK bug?); workaround
          + Do not display "Looking for change" messages during
            propagation (when checking the targe is unchanged) but only
            during update detection
          + Apply patch to fix some crashes in the OSX GUI, thanks to
            Onne Gorter.
     * Text UI
          + During update detection, display status by updating a single
            line rather than generating a new line of output every so
            often. Should be less confusing.
     * Windows
          + Fastcheck is now the default under Windows. People mostly use
            NTFS nowadays and the Unicode API provides an equivalent to
            inode numbers for this filesystem.
          + Only use long UNC path for accessing replicas (as '..' is not
            handled with this format of paths, but can be useful)
          + Windows text UI: now put the console into UTF-8 output mode.
            This is the right thing to do when in Unicode mode, and is no
            worse than what we had previously otherwise (the console use
            some esoteric encoding by default). This only works when
            using a Unicode font instead of the default raster font.
          + Don't get the home directory from environment variable HOME
            under Windows (except for Cygwin binaries): we don't want the
            behavior of Unison to depends on whether it is run from a
            Cygwin shell (where HOME is set) or in any other way (where
            HOME is usually not set).
     * Miscellaneous fixes and improvements
          + Made a server waiting on a socket more resilient to
            unexpected lost connections from the client.
          + Small patch to property setting code suggested by Ulrich
          + Several fixes to the change transfer functions (both the
            internal ones and external transfers using rsync). In
            particular, limit the number of simultaneous transfer using
            an rsync (as the rsync algorithm can use a large amount of
            memory when processing huge files)
          + Keep track of which file contents are being transferred, and
            delay the transfer of a file when another file with the same
            contents is currently being transferred. This way, the second
            transfer can be skipped and replaced by a local copy.
          + Experimental update detection optimization: do not read the
            contents of unchanged directories
          + When a file transfer fails, turn off fastcheck for this file
            on the next sync.
          + Fixed bug with case insensitive mode on a case sensitive
               o if file "a/a" is created on one replica and directory
                 "A" is created on the other, the file failed to be
                 synchronized the first time Unison is run afterwards, as
                 Unison uses the wrong path "a/a" (if Unison is run
                 again, the directories are in the archive, so the right
                 path is used);
               o if file "a" appears on one replica and file "A" appears
                 on the other with different contents, Unison was unable
                 to synchronize them.
          + Improved error reporting when the destination is updated
            during synchronization: Unison now tells which file has been
            updated, and how.
          + Limit the length of temporary file names
          + Case sensitivity information put in the archive (in a
            backward compatible way) and checked when the archive is
          + Got rid of the 16mb marshalling limit by marshalling to a
          + Resume copy of partially transferred files.

Update to 2.32.52, ok tonio.
Set license.

Changes since 2.32.44:

    * Improvement to the code for resuming directory transfers: (1) make sure file information (permissions, ...) has been properly set when using a previously transferred temp file (2) make sure previously transferred directories are writable (other changes made in the developer version of Unison require a protocol change)
    * Got rid of the 16MiB marshalling limit by marshalling to a bigarray
    * Ignore one hour differences for deciding whether a file may have been updated. This avoids slow update detection after daylight saving time changes under Windows. This makes it slightly more likely to miss an update, but that should be safe enough.
    * Improved Unison icon under Windows
    * Case sensitivity information put in the archive (in a backward compatible way) and checked when the archive is loaded
    * Uses improved emulation of "select" call provided by Ocaml 3.11 under Windows (the GUI does not freeze as much during synchronization)
    * Upgraded to GPL version 3 and added copyright notice to documentation files.
    * Unison can sometimes fail to transfer a file, giving the unhelpful message "Destination updated during synchronization" even though the file has not been changed. This can be caused by programs that change either the file's contents *or* the file's extended attributes without changing its modification time. I'm not sure what is the best fix for this it is not Unison's fault, but it makes Unison's behavior puzzling but at least Unison can be more helpful about suggesting a workaround (running once with 'fastcheck' set to false). The failure message has been changed to give this advice.
    * Text UI
          o During update detection, display status by updating a single line rather than generating a new line of output every so often. That should be less confusing.
          o In repeat mode, don't save the archives when there is no update. Indeed, in this mode, we should minimize the amount of work performed and it is unlikely that the archives have changed much.
    * Bugfixes
          o Fixed quotation of paths and names when writing to a preference file
          o Fixed bug resulting in slow performances when transferring a file using our rsync implementation from a 64-bit architecture to a 32-bit architecture.
          o Fixed bug in which could make it fail with a Not_found exception (see [Not_found raised in tryCopyMovedFile] errors)
          o Properly deals with non-conformant AppleDouble files produced by Mac OS X.
          o Fixed bug that results in Unison missing ressource fork changes
          o Applied a patch from Karl M to make the GTK2 version build with OCaml 3.11 on Windows.
          o Added some extra debugging code to to give more informative error messages when people encounter the longstanding "assert failed during file transfer" bug.
          o Applied patch from Antoine Reilles for NetBSD compilation
          o Resizing the update window vertically no longer moves the status label. Fix contributed by Pedro Melo.

Changes since 2.31:

    * Minor fixes and improvements:
          o Ignore one hour differences when deciding whether a file may have been updated. This avoids slow update detection after daylight saving time changes under Windows. This makes Unison slightly more likely to miss an update, but it should be safe enough.
          o Fix a small bug that was affecting mainly windows users. We need to commit the archives at the end of the sync even if there are no updates to propagate because some files (in fact, if we've just switched to DST on windows, a LOT of files) might have new modtimes in the archive. (Changed the text UI only. It's less clear where to change the GUI.)
          o Don't delete the temp file when a transfer fails due to a fingerprint mismatch (so that we can have a look and see why!) We've also added more debugging code togive more informative error messages when we encounter the dreaded and longstanding "assert failed during file transfer" bug

Changes since 2.27:

    * If Unison is interrupted during a directory transfer, it will now leave the partially transferred directory intact in a temporary location. (This maintains the invariant that new files/directories are transferred either completely or not at all.) The next time Unison is run, it will continue filling in this temporary directory, skipping transferring files that it finds are already there.
    * We've added experimental support for invoking an external file transfer tool for whole-file copies instead of Unison's built-in transfer protocol. Three new preferences have been added:
          o copyprog is a string giving the name (and command-line switches, if needed) of an external program that can be used to copy large files efficiently. By default, rsync is invoked, but other tools such as scp can be used instead by changing the value of this preference. (Although this is not its primary purpose, rsync is actually a pretty fast way of copying files that don't already exist on the receiving host.) For files that do already exist on (but that have been changed in one replica), Unison will always use its built-in implementation of the rsync algorithm.
          o Added a "copyprogrest" preference, so that we can give different command lines for invoking the external copy utility depending on whether a partially transferred file already exists or not. (Rsync doesn't seem to care about this, but other utilities may.)
          o copythreshold is an integer (-1 by default), indicating above what filesize (in megabytse the external copying utility specified by copyprog. Specifying 0 will cause ALL copies to use the external program; a negative number will prevent any files from using it. (Default is -1.)
      Thanks to Alan Schmitt for a huge amount of hacking and o an anonymous sponsor for suggesting and underwriting this extension.
    * Small improvements:
          o Added a new preference, dontchmod. By default, Unison uses the chmod system call to set the permission bits of files after it has copied them. Butin some circumstances (and under some operating systems), the chmod call always fails. Setting this preference completely prevents Unison from ever calling chmod.
          o Don't ignore files that look like backup files if the backuplocation preference  set to central
          o Shortened the names of several preferences. The old names are also still supported, for backwards compatibility, but they do not appear in the documentation.
          o Lots of little documentation tidying. (In particular, preferences are separated into Basic and Advanced! This should hopefully make Unison a little more approachable for new users.
          o Unison can sometimes fail to transfer a file, giving the unhelpful message "Destination updated during synchronization"

    * Further improvements to the OS X GUI (thanks to Alan Schmitt and Craig Federighi).

# Very preliminary support for triggering Unison from an external filesystem-watching utility. The current implementation is very simple, not efficient, and almost completely untestedot ready for real users. But if someone wants to help improve it (e.g., by writing a filesystem watcher for your favorite OS), please make yourself known!

On the Unison side, the new behavior is very simple:

    * use the text UI
    * start Unison with the command-line flag "-repeat FOO", where FOO is name of a file where Unison should look for notifications of changes
    * when it starts up, Unison will read the whole contents of this file (on both hosts), which should be a newline-separated list of paths (relative to the root of the synchronization) and synchronize just these paths, as if it had been started with the "-path=xxx" option for each one of them
    * when it finishes, it will sleep for a few seconds and then examine the watchfile again; if anything has been added, it will read the new paths, synchronize them, and go back to sleep
    * that's it!

To use this to drive Unison "incrementally," just start it in this mode and start up a tool (on each host) to watch for new changes to the filesystem and append the appropriate paths to the watchfile. Hopefully such tools should not be too hard to write.
# Bug fixes:

    * Fixed a bug that was causing new files to be created with permissions 0x600 instead of using a reasonable default (like 0x644), if the 'perms' flag was set to 0. (Bug reported by Ben Crowell.)
    * Follow maxthreads preference when transferring directories.

Update net/unison to 2.27.53
Enable full destdir support.

Changes since 2.17:
* Several small fixes to the GTK2 UI to make it work better under Windows
* The backup functionality has been completely rewritten. The external
  interface has not changed, but numerous bugs, irregular behaviors, and
  cross-platform inconsistencies have been corrected.
* Some important safety improvements:
  o Added a new mountpoint preference, which can be used to specify a path
    that must exist in both replicas at the end of update detection
  o The confirmation of ig deletesis now controlled by a boolean
preference confirmbigdeletes. Default is true, which gives the same behavior
as previously. (This functionality is at least partly superceded by the
mountpoint preference, but it has been left in place in case it is useful to
some people.)
  o If Unison is asked to ollowa symbolic link but there is nothing at
the other end of the link, it will now flag this path as an error, rather
than treating the symlink itself as missing or deleted. This avoids a
potentially dangerous situation where a followed symlink points to an
external filesystem that might be offline when Unison is run (whereupon
Unison would cheerfully delete the corresponding files in the other
* Smaller changes:
  o Added forcepartial and preferpartial preferences, which behave like force
and prefer but can be specified on a per-path basis. [Thanks to Alan Schmitt
for this.]
  o A bare-bones self test feature was added, which runs unison through some
of its paces and checks that the results are as expected. The coverage of the
tests is still very limited, but the facility has already been very useful in
debugging the new backup functionality (especially in exposing some subtle
cross-platform issues).
  o Refined debugging code so that the verbosity of individual modules can be
controlled separately. Instead of just putting '-debug verbose' on the
command line, you can put '-debug update+', which causes all the extra
messages in the Update module, but not other modules, to be printed. Putting
'-debug verbose' causes all modules to print with maximum verbosity.
  o Removed mergebatch preference. (It never seemed very useful, and its
semantics were confusing.)
  o Rewrote some of the merging functionality, for better cooperation with
external Harmony instances.
  o Changed the temp file prefix from .# to .unison.
  o Compressed the output from the text user interface (particularly when run
with the -terse flag) to make it easier to interpret the results when Unison
is run several times in succession from a script.
  o Changed the order of arguments to the default diff command (so that the +
and - annotations in diff's output are reversed).
  o Small fix to ctime (non-)handling in update detection under windows with
