If everyone uses --delay-updates --delete --delete-after, then rsync
puts the temporary files in .~tmp~/ directories, and it automatically
excludes those temporary files from the rsync transfer.
This option puts the temporary file from each updated file into
a holding directory until the end of the transfer, at which time
all the files are renamed into place in rapid succession. This
attempts to make the updating of the files a little more atomic.
By default the files are placed into a directory named “.~tmp~”
in each file’s destination directory, but if you’ve specified
the --partial-dir option, that directory will be used instead.
See the comments in the --partial-dir section for a discussion
of how this “.~tmp~” dir will be excluded from the transfer, and
what you can do if you want rsync to cleanup old “.~tmp~” dirs
that might be lying around. Conflicts with --inplace and
