Flavio Paiva Junqueira commented on ZOOKEEPER-29:

Mahadev, thanks for checking it out. Here are answers to your questions:

1- With this patch, it defaults to majority if there is no declaration of 
groups and weights. We currently use majority quorums;
2- No, the example is fine. You have a quorum if you have at least two servers 
from two different groups;
3- I don't see a reason for having groups in a first cut and weights in a 
second. In fact, one typical way of specifying quorums is to assign weights, so 
even if a user is not interested in groups, the user can declare one group and 
assign weights.
