csync and pam_csync is BETA! csync is a bidirectional file synchronizer for 
Linux and allows to keep two copies of files and directories in sync. It uses 
uses widly adopted protocols like smb or sftp so that there is no need for a 
server component of csync. It is a user-level program which means there is no 
need to be a superuser.
With pam_csync it is possible to create *roaming home directories*.

This version fixes several bugs to increase the stability of the file 
synchronizer. It provides a new plugin to synchronize two replicas with the 
*SFTP* protocol. To get the csync SFTP plugin working you need libssh 0.2 with 
the following two patches:


The libssh package in the network:synchronization:files project in the build 
service has these two patches. The csync version of the BS project provides a 
csync-plugin-sftp package.

Packages for Fedora 9, openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 can be downloaded
