I've had exactly the same thought last evening. Instead of trying to find the
bug(s) in the current patch, I'd like to start it over again and do small
incremental changes from the current trunk towards the current ZOOKEEPER-823
Maybe I could do this in ZOOKEEPER-823 patch, this would mean to revert the
already applied ZOOKEEPER-823 patch.
Then I want to test each incremental step at least 5 times to find the step(s)
that breaks ZK.
This approach should take me another two weeks, I believe, mostly because each
Test run takes ~15-25 minutes.
