RE: OL 2.2 and syncrepl vs slurpd

I think that slurpd is still required for security reasons :
In my project I install the master in the internal secure network and the
replica(s) in the in DMZs exposed to risks.
As incoming TCP Connections (external --> internal) are prohibited I cannot
use syncrepl to syncronise the replicas.
But slurpd is a good solution for this situation because the TCP connections
are outgoing (from the master to the replica).
Best Regards

Just to add to Ando's reply - using the OL 2.2 consumer with an OL 2.3
provider should be safe.

I may push for dropping slurpd from OL 2.4, based on some replication
refactoring that Ando has suggested.
