I've been trying to read up on the sync protocol, but I've got some 
questions left:

http://www.cvsnt.org/pipermail/cvsnt/2008-May/030642.html describes how to 
use rsync/unison
to perform the synchronization, either using a cronjob or a postcommit 

I'm wondering what would happen if a client commits something to a slave, 
which is currently
not in sync with the master (with just one server they would have a 
conflict). The slave would 
probably happily accept the commit, but the next rsync would fail due to 
the conflict, I suppose?

Does the commercial version contain a more failsafe synchronization 
option? Also, does it work
synchronously or asynchronously on commit, i.e. would a commit have to 
wait until the synchronization
to all slaves is finished?
