What should be the output from the tracker if a node (that does that have the file) asks for a group assignment before a node that has the file shows interest ? The tracker has no knowlede who has the file in this case .. should the reply just indicate 0 nodes so that the node can ask an assignment again after request timeout period ?
Till the Tracker gets the seed he has nothing to do ..
so client will basically timeout and tehn resend his request .
and if within tht time tracker has a SEED
he can reply back to the request of the client with a groupassign message
hope this helps
happy hacking !!!!
