Thank you for your suggestion. This has been added to the feature request list. We encourage others to vote as we use this input for prioritizing our release plans.James Robinson commented
This definitely needs looking at, if you only have a limited bandwidth to a specific replication site and you only want patches to be replicated for example; it results in huge volume to sync over a limited bandwidth and 90% is not required so in the previous example it would sync all software installers and scripts etc all of which are not needed.
This also applies if you create a new managed install, it will then want to push this out to the rep share on the next schedule even though you dont want it shared and you know it will waste time bandwidth to the share to get it in sync.
The rep share needs to be looked at like the K2000 Remote Site Appliance which gives you the ability to select what features you want syncing across.
