copy) the initial repository from the WAN server to the LAN server.  All uses now use the
LAN repository.  Some cron-job automatically rsyncs the LAN repository back to the WAN server.

Only if the rsync is done as part of a post-commit operation:
otherwise, what are "atomic" operations for the Subversion repository
may be duplicated when only partially complete, and chaos may ensue.
