A quick two-way rsync can be setup by using --update from the
secondary to the primary replica and then --delete from the
primary to the secondary replica.
Another file syncronization utility to look at is unison:
"Unlike simple mirroring or backup utilities, Unison can deal
with updates to both replicas of a distributed directory
structure. Updates that do not conflict are propagated
automatically. Conflicting updates are detected and displayed."
