Building Manager/January 31, 2011


This week


Apps/tasks: Jeremy raised this issue as it has been necessary to resolve what are apps, what are tasks, and how we run them in order to move forward with multimaster work. An app view, roughly, is the top-level program, whereas a task is one of many tasks that might be sequenced by such a program. We had a 30 minute discussion on apps vs. tasks, multi-tasking (concurrency) vs. single-tasking. There is not a consensus yet, and this warrants further discussion. Ken presented a strawman architecture and proposal for 'capabilities', which will be circulated later and will be critique.
