DistWork uses a peer-to-peer architecture, allowing for automatic integration of non-permanent nodes.

DistWork was inspired by distcc, a distributed C/C++ compiler. I always felt that the concepts behind distcc and similiar programs such as distmp3 should be generalized and put into a framework that makes it easy to construct new distributed services.

DistWork is available from my Archive. The following branches are are active:
