what is a good way to do 'maintaining data distribution'

In first approximation:

1. At startup Mnesia try to find the node where the freshest version
of table is located. If local replica is older table's file is copied
to local machine. You can use mnesia:set_master_node([MasterNode]) to
force Mnesia to use MasterNode as source.

2. At runtime Mnesia keeps log of records to sync. Details depend from
mode you use - transactional or dirty.
