Doesn't AFS do inter-cell communication?  Why not just have first1 - /afs/tr/software be the RW replica, and  second1 - 
/afs/ddc/software be a RO replica?  You just release them all instead of messing with rsync 
at all?  With the source constantly changing, you'll generate a lot fewer 
errors that way, and it'll be a lot easier on your resources.

If AFS can't do this, I apologize for the useless info.  My experience is 
with IBM/TransARC DCE/DFS (and that's almost 2 years stale).

   I had a question on rsynch'ing, please do help me on this,
     I have scenario where,I need to synch the two softwares, where both
the software are across the network, on different cells( AFS cells).
    For ex: first1 - /afs/tr/software , second1 - /afs/ddc/software
            Both the softwares are same & fist1 cell will be constantly
updating and I need to synch this software to sencond1. In this scenario
