Hi Again,

I just read that the CODA filesystem can replicate to multiple servers, 
and when a server goes down and comes back up some time after files on 
the remaining server have changed, the policy for repair is to repair on 
next access.  Now I don't believe that this policy is ideal because if 
the second server then fails before a file has been accessed, the file 
is not up to date, but it does highlight a possible repair technique 
whereby the client does a loopback write for all files with different 
timestamps or some other marked difference?
