Repository failover

I'm looking for gotchas and best practices in implementing a failover
repository for CVS. The idea would be to use rsync or something similar to
copy the contents of a repository to a failover server with the cvspserver
entry disabled in /etc/xinetd.d (RedHat 7.3 servers). In the case of
failure of the primary server, the cvspserver entry would be enabled on the
failover server to allow access to the copy of the repository. Obviously,
this would not prevent local clients on the failover server from
potentially modifying the copy but such changes would be overwritten on a
subsequent rsync anyway.

Does this sound reasonable? Any potential problems?
