It has been awhile since I setup a warm standby server, so I dutifully
followed the documentation. However, the documentation specifically
suggests using 'cp -i' as the archive command. Granted, it does say
that it is only a suggestion and not a recommendation, but does
specifically mention it for Linux.
Wasn't three days before I was bitten by transferring a WAL file
before it was fully copied into the archive location.
Attached is a patch that makes the suggestion be 'rsync -avr' in both
backup.sgml and pg_standby.sgml.
