Checkpoint/Restart Publications

Items are listed chronologically within each section. Since BLCR is an ongoing research project, information in later publications may supersede earlier ones and some aspects of BLCR may not be accurately reflected by any of these publications. In all cases the documentation that accompanies a given source distribution of BLCR should be considered more authoritative than any document here. If in doubt, ask.
