Replicate access rules in replication
Currently, metacat doesn't replicate access rules in xml_access table.
For eml documents, it wouldn't be a problem since eml itself has the access rules. However, for none-eml documents, it can be problem:
A host was inserted a FGDC document and user uses setAccess API to make this public readable. So in host A, the document is public readable. However, in host B, which got the replicated copy, the document is not public readable since the document itself doesn't have the access rules and both timed and force replication doesn't replicate access rules.
Here is the plan:
1. setAccess method will be added into the listener of force replication action.
2. Timed replication will replicate xml_access table as well.

committed replication changes:
-document access rules will be replicated
-data access rules will be replicated
-setting access via the metacat servlet (action=setaccess) will result in a forced replication for that docid (data or xml)
now i need to test it!
