What is your goal?

You can sync repositories using rsync or CVSup.  But with both of
these there is a single master repository, and the others are
basically read-only mirrors.  (This is useful for providing anonymous
cvs access.)

Automatically synchronizing two repositories, both of which are
read-write, is hard or impossible, depending on what you expect out of
it.  In the end (in the general case) it always requires a human to
resolve conflicts.
