Snapshot Roster

A roster-snapshot takes a picture of a set of domains in the federation at a particular point of time. This can be done manually of course, but we mainly refer to the process of code generating the contents of a roster, and storing this in a way that can be reliably referede to by the rest of the federation.

# Reliability

Active rosters are not loosely coupled. If the web service that generates the roster goes down, you loose your roster, and all functioning views and features that this roster supports.
