okay, now it is clear. But does it make sense *not* to declare a
synchronization 'successful', if there are ignored files? For example,
if you have large temporary files you want to ignore during sync, the
sync-process itself is successful although the files are excluded from sync.

I also wanted to mention this point. :o)
