Can you please explain 'flavor'? Is that this meaning?
to give flavor to (something).

This comes in two flavors. The weak termination condition says that if there are no failures then all processes eventually decide. The strong termination condition (also known as the non-blocking condition) says that all nonfaulty processes eventually decide.

Flavor means taste, aroma.

To give flavor to something, means adding a distinct taste to it. Like, by adding cream to coffee you alter its taste, add the cream flavor to your drink.

I haven't come across a context where the word flavor is used in physics. But your sample context suggests that it is used as "alternative outcomes".

This comes in two flavors: The weak termination condition and the strong termination condition.

Quarks come in different flavours. They are using that metaphor. Different types, different conditions.

4.
PHYSICS
a quantized property of quarks which differentiates them into at least six varieties (up, down, charmed, strange, top, bottom).



It is totally unnecessary to use it in that example. There are two possible conditions - weak and strong.
