It's two-way.

It's my archive, so of course I control what goes into it (the same way you'd
control any files on unix).  Inter-archive merging in arch is usually `pull'
based, so if I wanted to merge changes from someone elses branch, I'd have to
explicitly do so -- in a way it's similar to applying patches someone sends
to the mailing list, just more convenient and with better record-keeping.

The remote mirrors on non-GNU machines, OTOH, _are_ just mirrors; of course
now that everything's signed I'd have no qualms about using them to restore
the master fencepost copy if something horrible happened.

If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.  [George Carlin]
