I'd like to voice one caveat:

If you are using authuser.php script and protecting your pages, be
aware the encryptions in SiteAdmin.AuthUser do no translate across
installations (at least they haven't in my experience). So if you've
set this up, you may need to reencrypt the passwords on each end.
Better, I think, to just exclude the page from the rsync process
(especially if it's two-way synchronization).
