How do you synchronise users between Proxmox clusters?

We have two Proxmox clusters that are geographically quite far apart.

They are both behind NAT-ing firewalls, and hence on different Layer 2 networks.

What is the best way to synchronise the user databases between them?

Is it safe to synchronise /etc/pve/user.cfg between them?

Or is there another better way?
