Section version incrementation


#1

Latest dev update contains a link to an nice diagram showing the results of a simulation.

The problem I see in the simulation is that the section version is incremented each time a new member is added or removed, while in reality it is only incremented when a split or a merge occurs (at least on routing master branch).

I am signaling this discrepancy, just to be sure that Maidsafe is aware of it when assessing the alternatives for data chain implementation.

I think this diagram is the preliminary test for the next datachain (at least the sections part) and this probes are, for the moment, outside the master branch.

Yes this is correct. Master atm does not follow the rules required to allow this option B to happen. Master at the moment uses section versions in a much more specific role (for own section updates). Option B formalises this a bit though.

Thanks for your ever keen eye though, much appreciated.
