This project is named based on the desire to shepherd the resources on the Internet in an efficient manner. A central requirement is for applications to have network awareness ; some form of knowledge about the state of relevant portions of the network. The simple task of downloading a file can serve as a good example. Assuming three identical copies of a file exist at different servers, no matter which server is chosen the downloaded file will be identical. The transfer time will however depend on the chosen server and several factors related to it, such as e. A fast download will not only please the user, but likely also make more efficient use of the network capacity on the Internet, because it will probably have to travel a shorter distance to arrive at the users machine; a user in Norway is likely to retrieve files from a server in Oslo at a faster rate than if the same file was downloaded from a server in e. Today, the task of choosing an appropriate server is often left to the user.

The GNU Shepherd
For more than years shepherds have been an important part of the economy. Their importance to the flock is undisputable as shepherds keep it intact, protect and guide it. Can there be a better inspiration for a project management software? We don't think so.
We can't live , work, or learn in freedom unless the software we use is free. Become an associate member and join the free software movement in defending your freedoms before August 7th! GNU Operating System. It provides a replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV-init or any other init with a both powerful and beautiful dependency-based system with a convenient interface. Older releases are available from alpha. Documentation for the Shepherd is available on-line, as is documentation for most GNU software. The guix-devel mailing list is used to discuss most aspects of the Shepherd, including development and enhancement requests. Please report bugs to the bug-guix mailing list, which has an associated issue tracker. Guix-commits receives notifications of commits to the version control repository. Announcements about the Shepherd and most other GNU software are made on info-gnu archive.
