I’m definately in favor of this proposal, it covers my usecases perfectly. I won’t go into too much detail, as these usecases have been layed out by others already. (Mainly one or more server-style devices which also do versioning and one or more mobile devices owned by one or more people. The servers should never propagate local additions or deletions as they are always accidental).
While I am interested in having per-device/per-folder R/W settings as proposed by @AudriusButkevicius, I am positive that we’d need a very well defined method of finding a global consensus between all devices sharing a folder. This would also require a new UI item to notify anyone of either forced changes or devices which don’t adhere to the consensus.
This would be awesome, as it significantly simplifies managing a bigger p2p setup, but it’s certainly a big step that needs some real thought.
I guess I’ll create a topic on that, as a consensus mechanism is one of the things which could greatly improve ST usability to new or less technical users.
Until we may some day get something like this I’d prefer the simplistic “receive only” approach, as changing R/W settings on every device is already a PITA with the simpler read only + send only options.
