How does send-only work

Just to understand how Syncthing now acts, and view the global logic for all kind of devices including receivers only, I’d like to know what happens if (if ever possible) two devices are set send only and aren’t synchronized together in a cluster. Is there already a hierarchical management or how is it solved ? Thanks.

All send-only means is not to accept any changes from anyone. If you have two send-only devices, they will both refuse any changes. Override changes means “send my local view to others”, which once received by send-receive folder is materialized. On the other send only node that’s still completely ignored.

That’s why auto “override changes” does not exist, as two send-only devices could keep enforcing their own view of the files in a loop until the cows go home.
