Quoting from the dirvish.conf manpage:

       tree: path [alias] (S)
              Specify a directory path on the client to backup.

              If path is prefixed with a colon the transfer will be done  from
              an  rsync  daemon  on  the client otherwise the transfer will be
              done through a remote shell process.
