Two statements "If another sync is requested, either manually or by its 
schedules, it will be queued up to execute once all other pending tasks 
related to that repository have resolved. For instance, ..."  and  "A 
repository may only have one running sync operation at a time. 
Attempting to trigger another manual sync while one is running will 
cause the CLI to display the progress of the already running sync." seem 
a bit contradicting.

First statement seems to suggest that we do allow multiple syncs to be 
initiated on a repo, just that there will be only 1 running at a time 
and others will be queued, while the second statement suggests that 
there is no way of triggering another sync on repo. Is triggering 
multiple syncs only supported in api and not cli? or is it that cli 
outputs status of currently running sync but another sync is queued up 
for the repo in the background?

Apart from that, really well written detailed user guide, Jay.
