comment Why is an XML file with the same name being created when I save an MXD?
re: "arcmap expects you to add metadata to all your ArcMap projects" I'm not sure that's correct. There are plenty of places to add metadata within the MXD (eg > File > Map Document Properties), but it's not mandatory to do so. I'm not seeing XML files being created when I save a new MXD.

comment How to use ArcGIS functionality in Python without running ArcMap (e.g. separate editor/environment)
just a comment regarding IDLE or a standard text editor. I personally find PythonWin a much easier way to work since it has better debugging capabilities - crucial while learning. See instructions on installing PythonWin with ArcGIS 10. You do need to ensure you install the version of PythonWin from the ArcGIS DVD, or it can break the Python installation.

comment Remove Holes Existing Within a Single Polygon in ArcGIS 10
cool, glad that it worked. Creating the new feature automatically wasn't working consistently for me in a quick test I just did, but it has worked previously

comment Remove Holes Existing Within a Single Polygon in ArcGIS 10
to clarify, do you mean that the polygon has holes/donuts? To me, "gap" implies a mismatch between two adjacent polygons.

comment How to a sync file geodatabase across multiple office locations?
Can you clarify which license level you are using (ArcView, ArcEditor or ArcInfo)? Will your regional users be editing the child databases, or are they read-only, with the updates flowing only one-way from the parent to the children?
