Thanks for the informative reply Rosser. So assuming that bucardo is
running on database t1, with t2 being the remote database do I need to do
something along the following lines?

root at master1:/var/log/bucardo# bucardo add dbgroup master1 t1:source
root at master1:/var/log/bucardo# bucardo add dbgroup master2 t2:source

(I am trying to adapt the tutorial from
my needs).
