>> 1. I get a subset of the data for field work for a couple of days.
>> Coming back from field work, I "sync" the edits to the main data
>> server.  An application takes care of the merge like git does.
>> 2. Two field workers, edit the same data on a different area.  An
>> application manages the conflict before merging to main data server.
