Story #4341

Updated by dalley over 1 year ago

The "mirroring" docs page is currently empty. We need to fill this out with descriptions of what "mirror=True" and "mirror=False" do, and what the default sync mode is. This needs to be well explained to users, with particular emphasis given to the fact that a mirror=True sync on top of a repository with multiple different types of content will be extremely destructive, because mirror syncs don't respect content type boundaries.

-This This extends also to the interactions between immediate mode and lazy sync modes, and additive sync. There are "gotchas", like if you first perform a lazy sync and then perform an immediate, additive sync, no artifacts will be downloaded or associated with the existing content units. This is because there are no "new" units and whether the artifacts for the existing units exist or not is not checked.
