Hello:

Here, ya go. <http://gyaku.pair.com/vote/drupal/?q=node/view/80> Look
for recent postings. Anything you haven't looked at lately should have
a red asterik at the end organized by subject matter. BTW: There is
now a link at the OVC page under links.

I've moved this thread to the ovc wiki, under considerations/autit
trail.

Let me know what you think of using that as a way to trap info.

I can use a clear goal for the audit log :
I propose it is to :
(1) Confirm that the subsytem has gone through it's workflow as
expected.
- Nota Bene: I think the paper trail has to be the definitive recount /
voter redundancy.
(2) Fault Tolerant design to anticipate most failure modes.
- Write-Once streaming
- Recognize the point the audit trail where itself ! has become
compromised.
