Lotus notes will do that, but it is not free or open source
and it requires servers.
Groove at one point tried to do the same as notes using peer-to-peer
without servers, but I don't know what became of it, and it is also, 
I think, closed source.

You're almost talking about using a Bit Torrent like technology
underneath a project management front end....
or something like database mirroring or
mirroring of FTP sites.

This gets you part of the way there,
but does not include disconnected operation.

This might almost fund it, or part of it

But I have never seen anything exactly like what you describe.

So, are you thinking of this on laptops or on mobile devices
or both?
