Editor's Notes

  • Incremental changes to the file, not the full file is synced.
  • We ask for it all at first – the lists themselves, schema, views, and the actual content.Then, on an ongoing basis, we just get changes for the content.This is a tip then – you cannot change the site itself from the client -
  • Enhacements come SP1
  • Sync a Site – Project WhistlerNew DocumentsCheck in / Check OutContent Types
