Github user cammckenzie commented on the issue: https://github.com/apache/curator/pull/262 To Curator, don't they all look the same? Ultimately, Curator will just get a Disconnected event? Given that we can't tell the difference between them, I think that we just have to document this as a limitation (tech note and in the relevant classes?) and maybe send out an email on the users email list. I think that we should ultimately just leave the other handling as is. Different % values can be passed to StandardConnectionHandlingPolicy to achieve the same thing as an AggressiveConnectionHandlingPolicy just by passing in a value of 33 yes? This PR is still relevant though and should be merged.
