This is a project to revive and modernize the gen_leader library. Numerous versions of this project exist, developed by disparate groups with different aims. By collecting and integrating these we hope to provide a new standard-library-quality module for the Erlang runtime that provides leader-election functionality without many of the difficulties traditionally associated with such.

Which Version Should I Use?

Use the version in combined_version.

What Exactly Does It Do?

Leader election behavior.

This application implements a leader election behavior modeled after gen_server. This behavior intends to make it reasonably straightforward to implement a fully distributed server with master-slave semantics.
