gen_server2 - a copy of LSHIFT's gen_server modifications

gen_server2 is a modified version of OTP's gen_server behaviour. This repository is hosted so people don't have to keep copying the gen_server2 source file into their projects, which is pointless unless you're planning on making modifications of your own.

If you're using rebar as your build tool, then you can include this in your dependencies to have it pulled down automatically:

%% file: rebar.config
{deps, [
  {gen_server2, "1.0.0", {git, "http://github.com/hyperthunk/gen_server2.git", "master"}}
]}.

And pull it with get/check-deps:

t4@malachi:plumber $ rebar get-deps
==> plumber (get-deps)
