both locally (Windows) and remotely (Linux) and the file layout
suggests that I could simply use unison (http://www.cis.upenn.edu/
~bcpierce/unison/) or some such to keep the data directories in sync.
I'm not all that familiar with Moin's internal structure so I thought
I'd check the list before setting it up and maybe screwing up my wiki
:-) Are there any internal state mechanisms that would get messed up if
I synched back and forth between these setups?
The text files ARE the central place to sync. You'd have two editlogs
though, and that "screws up" things like page history to some extend.
Also, you have to merge edit conflicts somehow (unison might do that).
CVS'ing your text dir is another way to do it.
In short: synching the text dir is enough, but some info will be lost
(mostly history-related, including recentchanges).
