'orphaned' child items when sync is slow

Hello @dstillman,
I'm not sure this is really a bug, but here we are.

(A) User 1 uploads new items into a group library (either as import, or without connectivity). Items have child items (e.g. notes). User 1 then goes online, and the library starts syncing.

(B) User 2 sees new items emerge in the group library and starts merging them with existing items.

Items that are merged onto pre-existing items before their child notes had syncd are orphaned.

A possible solution would be for Zotero to check for orphaned child items and to attach them to the items that resulted from the merge.

Hope that makes sense.
