Live copies without blueprints

As far as I can see from the MSM docs there are two techniques that can be used to copy content:

1- Blueprints
These represent site roots and offer various customizable rollout configs/actions between source site and copy site.

2- Livecopy
In the docs this is frequently and confusingly used as a synonym for the copy of a blueprint source.
However you can also create a live copy without requiring a blueprint source. (New LIveCopy...)
When creating this sort of live copy one is offered a choice of rollout configs, but as far as I can see, only one of these, 'PushOnModify', makes any sense. I cannot find any way of rolling out a livecopy source to a livecopy structure.

Is my understanding of rollout configs for live copies (not blueprints) correct? And if not, what should it be?

I believe you are understanding correctly. Blueprints allow you to manually perform a rollout. When a LiveCopy is created without a blueprint, only the events trigger the rollouts to occur. 

You can create your own rollout configurations and synchronization actions though, to customize the trigger and the sync actions.

Thanks, Scott - exactly the tip I needed. Falls into the category of "now why didn't I think of that"!
