        Hmm. I'm not sure that having two "master" sites is going to be
easy to sync, but there are programs like "mirror" for duplicating
machines, as well as "rsync", which are quite powerful. 
        If you could assure that the users on one repository only used
certain modules (they were "master" for those modules, and the other site
was master for different ones), you could always mirror the master
sub-directories to the slave repository. Otherwise, I'd probably just
dedicate one repository as the master, and mirror that as a backup. Why do
you need two different ones that both get committed to?
