For me it is git using a central "server". I push from the clients to the server and pull from the server only. Never on a device to device base, because most of the time the devices can't see each other (different networks).

Hope that helps

I think the issue with tools like Unison, Dropbox, is conflict
resolution on simultaneous edits.  Traditional version control does a
better job of that, but then it loses the convenience of these other

I believe there is a list member (Alan) close to Unison development; in
the thread referenced by Samuel there is some discussion on how this
could be done in a more well defined manner.

Hope this helps,
