My trick is that this is done without changing the database in
anyway. For this method of replication, we don't have to change the
backend at all. For other types, we must - see Repository GUID
thread.

Given what I have, the slaves would have to be reconfigured to point
at the new master (simply change the right Apache directive) and the
new master would have to install the post-commit script to update the
rest of the slaves.

Ideally, I'd like to see the slaves pull the changes from the master
on-demand rather than relying on a push from the master. I don't
think WebDAV has the concept of repository synchronization. It's a
rather interesting area. -- justin
