I've never tried ZSyncer with Zope 2.10; I don't have any guesses what
your problem is.

Have you tried syncing between two 2.10 instances? In general, you
move data from 2.X to 2.X-1 at your own risk, whether using ZSyncer or
the import/export tab in the ZMI.

I've been the "official" ZSyncer maintainer for about 5 years now, but
honestly I've barely touched it since 2005, since in its current state
it works well enough on the rare occasions that I need it. If somebody
else cares enough about ZSyncer to maintain it, please contact me.

Otherwise, to be crassly honest, I'm unlikely to do any
ZSyncer-related work unless somebody pays me to do so.
