Howdy. Darren, I'd reply in person, but there are issues with
your mail account. ;~) At anyrate, is there a mailing list that the
Postgres-R development is happening on so that I could drop in and
either listen/contribute? Thanks. -sc

Has anyone here thought about using the spread libraries for WAL

possible to have a multi-master replication system..
Yes, there is some work being done to use Spread as the group
for Postgres-R, but we are just getting started with this software.
Using a group
communication system to establish total order messages is one of the
basic principles for
synchronous multi-master replication with Postgres-R. Currently
Ensemble (form Cornell
University) is used, but Spread looks to be more robust and it appears
to be supported
on most if not all of the PostgreSQL supported platforms.
It's very cool to see positive testimony for Spread, and I hope I will
feel the same way
as I become more familiar with it.
