Hello Jordan, thanks for the discussion of partitioning. In fact, I believe that for what I have in mind, cross-partition transactions are not a requirement. (I'm looking at replacing another system with Copycat, and the current system does not have that either.) I notice that there is an old branch on GitHub "multi-threaded-appender". May I ask why you closed it? Is it for the above considerations? And would it still be a valid guideline for me to look at when trying to partition the AppendEntries?
