I used distributed-process 5 or 6 years ago when I was in uni for a distributed systems class. It was pretty nice, but I have no idea about its current maintenance. 

I wrote a blog post at the time with some thoughts on design patterns etc. http://yager.io/Distributed/Distributed.html

But only at first glance — the last release of distributed-process [1], which looks to be the main library, was in 2018, and many of the other packages are older. The "recent news" section of the website [2] even has its last entry from 2016!
