^^^ cman has been replaced by corosync 2.0 (or higher) in combination
with votequorum provide (see votequorum.5).

gfs2 still requires dlm for itīs dependencies but itīs not a replacement.

corosync was always a requirement though, it gets pulled in through the
deps

Well it is kind of, since thats where dlm_controld resides and that now
deals with all the recovery stuff now that gfs_controld is gone, so
maybe it could have been worded better, but it at least is correct in
terms of what needs to be installed package-wise,

No disagreement on the dependency here, but cman is not replaced by dlm
in terms of functionality, that would be incorrect.

Right, package wise you are right, you install dlm and you get corosync
indirectly. I was only pointing out the functionality chain here vs
package chain.

It might be better to express both in a doc since the landscape has
changed substantially.
