I'm not sure that we both have the same understanding of "sync-repos".

"fsvs sync-repos" makes fsvs ask all configured repositories for the current
filelist; it doesn't synchronize repositories.

Multi-URL operation might be a solution to your wish above - that only some
(small) subset of data is different.
For that you'd need a central repository (which hosts the *shared* data), and
another one (or some subdirectory) per machine, which holds the specific

fsvs doesn't do anything between *two* repositories - you'd need svnmirror or
svk for that.

"commit" sends information to the selected (option commit_to) repository.
To get the information back, you'd use "update" (or "checkout" in the first

I hope I could make myself a bit clearer ... if that doesn't help you (because
it's more or less the same language as in the manual pages and HOWTOs, and so
might not be helpful) just ask again - then I'll try to explain in another
way, to get us a common base.



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
