Hi everybody.

A couple questions from a newbie

1. Speaking of scalability, what numbers (computers, daemons, applications,
groups, message size, etc.) can Spread handle in practice? "The Spread
Toolkit: Architecture and Performance" document provides some numbers from a
laboratory test ( http://www.cnds.jhu.edu/pub/papers/cnds-2004-1.pdf ). What
about the real-life performance?

2. As to the codebase, is any courseware or other technical information
available for developers who are going to do some enhancements / fixes to
their copy of the code (with the intention to suggest them back to the
Spread development)?

Best Regards,
Igor Sindyakov
