--------------------------------------------------

Pat, we have a description of how to configure in the "Cluster options" of the 
Administrator guide. We are missing an example, which is in the source code as 
you point out.

>    Affects Versions: 3.2.0
>         Environment: Each machine:
> CentOS 5.2 64-bit
> 2GB ram

> POD(N): remote data center
> Zookeeper Topology:
> Leaders may be elected only in DC (weight = 1)
> Only followers are elected in PODS (weight = 0)

> In a WAN configuration, ZooKeeper is endlessly electing, terminating, and 
> re-electing a ZooKeeper leader. The WAN configuration involves two groups, a 
> central DC group of ZK servers that have a voting weight = 1, and a group of 
> servers in remote pods with a voting weight of 0.
> What we expect to see is leaders elected only in the DC, and the pods to 
> contain only followers. What we are seeing is a continuous cycling of 
> leaders. We have seen this consistently with 3.2.0, 3.2.0 + recommended 
> patches (473, 479, 481, 491), and now release 3.2.1.
