Only if you set it up that way. Tor hidden services work via
first-to-publish-wins. I run some hidden services that are duplicated
in different parts of the world. For example,

places. Whichever tor client happens to publish first means you go to
that one first. In this case, rsync works fine to keep the files up to
date because everything is static.

A decentralized publishing and synchronization system would be
great. Personally, I've been poking around at p2p commenting systems,

p2p search in Yacy,
