I've looked at Unison in the past but was somewhat put off by its
"lack of development" status and the fact that it was developed in
Objective Caml.   I'm still using home-grown rsync scripts for my
personal files which requires too much manual intervention to work

I would welcome a BLU presentation on Unison and similar software for
file syncing.   Back in 2010 there was a presentation of on-line
backups, but I consider this to be a different (albeit related) topic.
