in reply to Leader election in a distributed situation?

For what it's worth, I would welcome a good Raft implementation for Perl. I kind of wonder whether it makes sense to write it in Perl because you kind of want to be able to accept messages out-of-band with your normal application.

Maybe it's better to wrap a multi-threaded C library or to use the Go implementation (search for Go and Raft on github) and write a client for that. The latter ought to be pretty simple.

    In the end I realized I'd almost certainly need to wrap something external, just due to pain with Perl threading, and handling out of bound accesses.

    I started a pure perl implementation of this, but realized that I couldn't share a "Net::Peer::State" singleton-object around threads because it was too complex for threads::shared, at that point I've stalled for the moment, and have looked at alternative implementations.
