Hi everyone,

apologies for the cross-post; I believe this might be interesting to
people on both the openstack and the pacemaker lists. Please see

I've taken the liberty to put together a bit of a summary of the
discussion we've had here,[1] roll it into a design summit brainstorm
proposal, and also post it on my blog, here:


I hope it's not a violation of list etiquette to say that instead of
cross-posting all replies to both lists, everyone's welcome to make
comments on that blog post, too (use your Launchpad OpenID). Please
feel free to flame me to a crisp or call me an idiot; as some of you
are aware I'm quite firmly an HA guy getting into OpenStack, rather
than the other way around.

Even if the design summit proposal doesn't make it through, perhaps a
few interested people (Monty? Jay? Adam? Major?) would like to sit
down over beverages to discuss this in person.

All comments and feedback much appreciated. Thanks!
