direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

I have a situation where I have local developers in town with tons of 
bandwidth and remote developers in Argentina with only a T1. I am hoping 
to replicate some data including our CVS repository to Argentina so they 
have a local copy. Sometimes they have to check out 200M of code and it 
takes forever over a T1. If it were constantly synced up and ready when 
they needed it things would be much nicer.

Can DRBD be safely used (over VPN) over the Internet as opposed to just 
between two boxes on the same LAN?

If I want both locations to be able to write to the volume I assume I 
will have to use something like GFS. Anyone have experience running CVS 
on GFS on DRBD over the Internet?

Is this whole idea nuts?
