I guess you haven't been following the syncrepl thread on -devel. After I
figured out that the fix for ITS#4703 and #4623 was going to be half-way to
multimaster anyway, it seemed silly to stop there. I spent this weekend
coding up the remainder.
With the recent hubbub on the -software list about it I decided to keep quiet
for a bit. Talking about it before it's done smacks of vaporware; it needs to
be tested more before we start talking about it more broadly.
All that aside, it's working fine for regular syncrepl with both refreshOnly
and refreshAndPersist. I don't really see delta-syncrepl supporting it; right
now I just don't feel like writing the code to parse the accesslog to do the
necessary conflict resolution. Of course, anyone else could take that on.
I'm still tinkering with it a bit. Not entirely happy with the whole rid vs
sid / cookie concept. I'd like to take a different approach, but right now
we're still backward compatible, so it will probably stay this way.
