Basically I have a set of nodes that need to make entries in the DHT.
If an entry with the key is already present then the entry is supposed
to be concatenated with its own id. These nodes can communicate to
each other and know each other's communication addresses. Right now
the way I am doing this is using the spread group communication
toolkit. This allows me to have total ordering amongst messages sent
to a group. I have all these nodes form a group. That way when one
wants to edit an entry it will send a message on the group stating the
same. This mechanism is still going through tests and seems to be
I would be more than happy to know otehr ways of doing this.
