    v39 v40  
    9191(Requires advanced C++/Unix system programming experience)
    9292
     93Easy:
     94 * Add a mechanism to recover from situations where the scheduler fails to send its reply message.
     95  * Add a reply_pending field to host table.  Set at start of scheduler, clear after reply message sent.
     96  * If get a request from host with reply_pending==1, scan for lost results
     97 This would replace the <resend_lost_results> mechanism.
     98
    9399Medium:
    94100 * When using HR, if the scheduler has sent one result of a WU using a particular app version, it should use the same app version for other results from that WU.  Otherwise, when new app versions are released, results may incorrectly be marked as invalid.
     101
    95102Hard:
    96103 * Implement a mechanism so that server software detects incompatible database format.
    97  * Scheduler: implement mechanisms so that servera ttempts to send results from the same WU to hosts with similar turnaround time, so that a fast host doesn't have to wait weeks to get credit.
     104 * Scheduler: implement mechanisms so that server atempts to send results from the same WU to hosts with similar turnaround time, so that a fast host doesn't have to wait weeks to get credit.
    98105 * Implement a "reference WU" mechanism.
    99106  * Add "reference WU ID" field to app table. Every host must complete the reference WU before it is sent any other jobs for that app.
