If I'm correct, we have JetBrains support, including Resharper for open source contribution, right? If so, how licensing procedure works?

just tell me where to mail the license
its an OSS license, so all core devs can have it

anyone know where I can find the source for the thunk() function that gets used inside Scala Akka's performance tests? See https://github.com/akka/akka/blob/cb05725c1ec8a09e9bfd57dd093911dd41c7b288/akka-cluster/src/test/scala/akka/cluster/VectorClockPerfSpec.scala#L54 for an example
I've gone as far as scouring the source inside scalatest itself to find it - no such luck yet :\
any ideas @rogeralsing @HCanber ?
trying to port some of the Akka.Cluster performance tests over

Its all there in that file :P

.... welp, I'm an idiot :(
doh!

I guess that is sort of like Action<vectorclock,vectorclock>

yeah, looks like it's just a typed Action

then they pass the compareTo func as the argument to it
In computer programming, a thunk is a subroutine that is created, often automatically, to assist a call to another subroutine. Thunks are primarily used to represent an additional calculation that a subroutine needs to execute, or to call a routine that does not support the usual calling mechanism. They have a variety of other applications to compiler code generation and modular programming.
so its just a higher order function?

that's the definition of Thunk that I'm used to, but for some reason I just assumed it meant some crazy Scala performance testing magic
no idea why I thought that :sake:

@rogeralsing set up a simpler URL to get people to the main akka.NET site >> http://getakka.net . Currently just forwards but if you want to use that URL via a CNAME on github pages, let me know
I'm also going through a lot of the docs and such and will be sending in some PRs for those soon.
