[Csci551-talk] termination assumptions

I am not very clear on two issues:
1. Is it correct to assume that once a guy is done downloading, he should NOT
advertise himself now as a seed to a tracker, but instead should gracefully exit?
The project states on p.9 that "if dowloading tasks are complete AND there is no
request from other client nodes for 2 rounds of group update...". The guy is either
a seed, in which case he exits if there are no requests for 2 rounds, or he could
become a seed after the completion of the download and then wait for 2 rounds,
or he could just exit right after the downloading is complete. I am not clear.
2. Is it correct to assume that the guys who might be listed in the "packet delay"
section, but who are not assigned any tasks (no entries for them in other tables),
should not even be forked? They are not going to express any interest anyway.
