Subject Re: [DRAFT][REPORT] River Board Report April 2011
Date Sun, 10 Apr 2011 23:14:24 GMT
Although I'm taking time out to deal with the RIVER-395 patch, my main 
River activity is educating myself about fault tolerant transactions, by 
reading papers on the subject. That does not produce much in the way of 
immediately visible results, but may be very useful in the long term.
