In our lengthy discussion about that topic, we found that a synchronize()
method is desired for the backends and EClient would expose this in its
API. How exactly the various E-D-S clients will represent this functionality
in their GUI needs to be discussed, but I think this detail is secondary
to the former (i.e. the communications infrastructure which makes it possible
to send a synchronization request to the backends, which they can then handle
in their very own fashion).

Have there been steps taken already towards implementing this infrastructure?

Kind regards,
