question about creation of archives

Hi all
In invoking the command:

$ /usr/bin/tarsnap -c --configfile ~/.tarsnaprc -f backup-`date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S` --totals --dry-run /home/albert

... I am greeted with:

tarsnap: Warning: Archive contains no files

The /home/albert directory is certainly not empty.
The ~/.tarsnaprc contains a number of include directories like:

include /home/albert/lab/manuscripts
include /home/albert/lab/grants

Do I need perhaps to include a * in the include declarations, like:

include /home/albert/lab/manuscripts/*
include /home/albert/lab/grants/*

Thank you,
