    staticweb: don't copy timestamps in rsync · 2af08db8

    Turns out the previous commit didn't fully work; it seems rsync doesn't
    copy content because the content matches (--checksum), but still syncs the
    file timestamp (--times, implied by --archive), so files still get touched
    on every deploy and If-Modified-Since requests remain ineffective.
    If I *don't* sync the mtime, files that actually get transferred will
    still have the mtime changed, but to the time rsync wrote them on the
    server rather than the local file's mtime. Files that don't get transferred
    will stay as they are.
    I could keep using -a (--archive) and explicitly disable copying
    timestamps (--no-times). However, -a implies -rlptgoD, and most of those
    are actually pointless for us (we can't copy ownership, we have no device
    nodes, sockets or fifos). Instead, replace -a with -rlp (recursive,
    symlinks, permissions), which is all we need. The lack of -t should fix
    the timestamp-touching issue.
