VR - Viewstamped Replication

This project aims to produce a highly available and consistent service through state-machine replication. Viewstamped Replication is intended to preserve consistency despite fail-stop (crash) faults and network unavailability; the BFT project later extended this work to handle arbitrary kinds of node failures.
