Assumptions are missing: I think you need a direct FIFO connection between each pair of proccesses, otherwise the described algorithm might fail.

Merge into Lamport's bakery algorithm[edit]

Am I correct in that this is basically a distributed version of Lamport's bakery algorithm? Should they be separate, since they are basically the same algorithm with a slight variation to work in a distributed system? At least there should be clearer links between the two pages, indicating their relation. Sega381 (talk) 15:36, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
