Abstract: This paper describes a computer bulletin board facility
intended to support replicated bulletin boards on a network
that may frequently be in a state of partition. The two major
design issues covered are the choice of a name space and the
choice of replication algorithms. The impact of the name
space on communication costs is explained. A special purpose
replication algorithm that provides high availability and
response despite network partition is introduced.
