Write needs to be able to share the activity among other computers after the first/primary computer leaves, as well as to allow new computers to join/rejoin the session.

I seem to recall being told that this was a known issue but I don't see a ticket for it.

Still seems to be present over Ad-hoc with Write-73 in OLPC 11.2.0 os15.

This was in part the motivation behind the work the Ben Swartz put into his collaborative writing program, groupthink. It is not clear that the standard sharing model is the best path forward for this ticket.

AbiCollab these days has support for "session takeover" if the "session initiator" disconnects. I implemented this for the OLPC backend, but it was 100% untested: i never even ran the code. So surely there is one stupid one-liner somewhere that prevents it from actually working.

The only case this would not work, is when the initiator unexpectedly drops out. We still can't recover from that.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
