You were clear that you don't do automated synchronization.

For FireFox bookmarks I use a synchronization plugin. I'm
happy with it. But I don't think I like the idea of having my
password dataset stored on a 3rd party computer in the clouds.
Thus, my question about synchronization of KeePass or KeePassX.

Both KeePass (at keepass.info) and KeePass at keepassx.org have
multiple versions that run on multiple platforms including linux,
windows, and macOS. But I still don't know the differences.
A revisit to the two sites showed two interesting things, KeePass
(at keepass.info) has two major releases 1.17 and 2.10. A feature
comparison table showed "synchronization" for the 2.10 release,
but not for the 1.17 release. Haven't found additional info yet.
Googling for "keepass synchronization" found several threads of a
use-contributed patch to keepass (at keepassx.org) that implements
synchronization. However, a year later the patch has not been
incorporated into the latest release.
