This is a feature I would also be interested in. My password manager KeePassX creates a
.lock file when the database is opened read-write. Synchronising the
.lock file between machines is useful because the database will be opened read-only on the second machine preventing any conflicts.
It'd be useful if these were maybe implemented as default ignore rules instead so we can remove them if required.
Is there any status on this?
Edit: as a workaround, I have just created a copy of the
.lock file on my second PC. I generally only open the database read-write on the first and remote desktop in if I need to make changes anyway, so this ensures that the database will always open read-only on the second PC. As a side affect of Insync ignoring temporary and lock files, the
.lock file on the second PC will not be synced to the first PC so it doesn't cause any problems.
Maybe someone else will find this workaround helpful.
