I like it: I do think the UI could be nicer, though (I still think the mockup one that was posted by a user on here ages ago looks nicer than the shipping one). The functionality is there, however,...

"Existing sync client entries will eventually go stale"??

I saw this in the latest OF release notes:



I'm a bit confused as to what (if anything) I have to do here. Will it be clear which client entries I have to remove, for example? Does this include...
