A Commutative Replicated Data Type (CRDT) is one where all concurrent operations commute. The replicas of a CRDT converge automatically, without complex concurrency control. We designed and developed a novel CRDT design for cooperative text editing, called Treedoc. It is designed over a dense identifier space based on a binary trees. Treedoc also includes an innovative garbage collection algorithm based on tree rebalancing. In the best case, Treedoc incurs no overhead with respect to a linear text buffer. The implementation has been validated with performance measurements, based on real traces of social text editing in Wikipedia and SVN.
