It's not a hard and fast rule, but to switch which repos is the master
and which is the slave you'd have to manually go in and mess with the
svnsync revprops on r0 of whichever is the slave. It's definately a
hard and fast rule that you can only have one master at any given
time. If you write to both the slave and the master then there's no
mechanism for resolving the inconsistency.

Paul Querna put up a HOWTO for basic read-only mirroring on his blog yesterday:
