Subject Re: Question about concurrent primitives library
Date Wed, 26 May 2010 18:11:56 GMT
Hi, this was originally proposed as a google summer of code project, the 
slots for gsoc have already been given out, this was not one of the 
projects chosen by apache. So you could still work on this if you like, 
but not under the gsoc umbrella. We (zk contributor community) would be 
happy to work with you. See the following for the recipes we currently 
ship with:
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/hadoop/zookeeper/trunk/src/recipes/

You might also check JIRA, such as:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-767

There's still alot of work to be done in this area. Such as:

* identifying and documenting what components the library might/should 
contain. See this for the current list: 
http://hadoop.apache.org/zookeeper/docs/current/recipes.html

* even the existing recipes could benefit, improved documentation for 
example.

* queues/locks are implemented in src/recipes, however the other recipes 
are not

* add python implementations in addition to c/java?

* not all recipes are black/white, but rather there are many variations 
to each. We could add these to the docs/implementation

there's probably alot more that could be done that I haven't identified, 
this is fertile ground. Would be great if you were interested and would 
like to contribute. Feel free to create some jiras and contribute 
patches! I encourage you to move further the discussion to the 
zookeeper-dev list, that's where we discuss "futures" and unreleased 
software.

Regards,

Patrick
