yes. but this scanning is in fact nothing else than executing stat(). the
actual content is not read unless a change in the metadata has been detected.

sure. just pass the file or path name:
csync2 -x / ...... check and sync everything in the config
csync2 -x /etc ... check and sync only the csync2-managed files in /etc
csync2 -x ........ check and sync everything in the hint database

thanks for the tip. I will have a look at this.
(unfortunately inotify can't mointor directory structures recusively
because it is inode-based and not named-based. so there is no checking
deamon for filling the csync2 hint database on the fly for linux yet.)
