> 1) If I have 2 or more -o options, do file names have to satisfy all -o options, or do they have to only satisfy one or more?
If a filename under consideration matches *any* of the -i options then it is ignored. If a filename under consideration matches *any* of the -o options then it is accepted.
> 2) Just to clarify, the -a option allows files starting with "." to be synced. It doesn't literally mean all files, including those that would be excluded by -o and -i? I ask this because the project description says "all" in bold which has me worried.
Using the -a option requests that *all* files, regardless of whether they begin with a '.' or not, should be considered for synchronisation. The 'all' is in bold simply as a reminder as to why it's the minus *a* option. The same is true for the description of all other options too.
