That sounds like a good translation to me. The maths gets complicated to put
it mildly, but I know Dr Yeturu's work is in some part at least based on
Paxos ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paxos_algorithm ). AIUI we've got the
only implementation of this model that can guarantee the consistency and
ordering of transactions; important when you need your repositories to
remain identical on every site!
