> Just to make sure: your complaint is that the rsync server's message-of-the-day is printed in the output? We could suppress it with rsync's --no-motd flag. Note: this motd has been present since we switched primary rsync servers in late November 2016; I don't think we've had any questions about it.
I think there might have been a few passing comments when it first appeared, but that is all.
That said, does it ever say anything useful, more than the welcome below ? I confess I stopped playing detailed attention some time ago, but i don’t recall it ever saying anything i really needed to see ? So perhaps suppressing it if easy is an idea.
