This question about Installation of Foswiki, Configuration: Answered

Can Foswiki be used as a distributed system (like git or fossil)?

I.e. can multiple users have their own local instance of Foswiki and at some later point synchronize their submissions?

Interesting question. Foswiki requires a web server, though there is nothing to say you can't host that web server locally. You could then use standard text file synchronisation methods (or the commercially available ReadWriteOfflinePlugin) to synchronise different installations together, to create a network of peers. However the core does not have anything explicitly included in it to make this possible; the expectation is that you will have a server somewhere that people are sharing.
