So, after other test, I ask you if coda is designed for mobility I mean:

Let's take the assumption, we work in multi-site environnement.
For different reason we don't want any stream from our users to go by our vpn, (dedicated inter-site line 99% of avaibility).
So each site handles his coda server (one handle the scm).
Some users because they move a lot between each site use a laptop and have their volume replicated.

Once their are in a site they can only join the server of this site.
I didn't manage to have a client working., this way.

Can coda handle this scheme? Are the volumes the only things that can move around? Or can
a client move from one server to another?

It would be an honor for me to join the dev-team but I don't think I meet the
quality requierment.

Thanks a lot.
