[rdiff-backup-users] [REPOST, sort of] Can't use check-destination-dir w

Subject: [rdiff-backup-users] [REPOST, sort of] Can't use check-destination-dir with a destination that doesn't support fsync()'ing directories

Please pardon the repost, but I haven't seen any replies in the last five days on the relevant thread ("--check-destination-dir failage w/ 1.0.4: Not running destination ability test?")

I'm not opposed to writing a patch for this issue myself, if some guidance as to how it would be appropriately implemented were to be provided. However, that guidance would indeed be appreciated.

I'm guessing that I'd want to call single_set_fs_globals() by way of require_root_set() from CheckDest(), and then wrap the fsync call at the end of regress.restore_orig_regfile() inside an if statement evaluating Globals.fsync_directories. Is this accurate?
