Jari, you announced 3.0.9-1 which was the version already available,
but you uploaded 3.1.0-1. I assume a copy-paste error.

Did you know that 3.1.0 has performance issues on cygwin? See almost
at the bottom of the "BUG FIXED" at

I tried to build rsync a while ago myself using cygport (I even
considered to ITA when 3.1.1 would be final). But when I ran "cygport
test" 6 test (batch-mode, chmod-option, exclude, hands, itemize and
symlink-ignore) fail with timeouts.

The 3.1.1pre1 fixes these issues. All the test that fail with 3.1.0
pass with 3.1.1pre1. I haven't tried to test your version.

And why is mentioned as homepage
and not
