I've started digging into results, credits, and WU definitions. In doing so I discovered what appear several old and not completed work units from a month ago. All these are apparently shared with others.

What happens in this case to my portion of the work if the other participant doesn't finish their work by deadline?

Thanks
Steve

All workunits are shared with at least one other host, if they don't validate, error out or aren't returned then they are sent out to other hosts, up to the max # of error/total/success tasks allowed.
