Please find, for review, the debconf templates and packages descriptions for the redhat-cluster source package.

This review will last from Monday, January 07, 2008 to Thursday, January 17, 2008.

Please send reviews as unified diffs (diff -u) against the original
files. Comments about your proposed changes will be appreciated.

Your review should be sent as an answer to this mail.

When appropriate, I will send intermediate requests for review, with
"[RFRn]" (n>=2) as a subject tag.

When we will reach a consensus, I send a "Last Chance For
Comments" mail with "[LCFC]" as a subject tag.

Finally, the reviewed templates will be sent to the package maintainer
as a bug report, and a mail will be sent to this list with "[BTS]" as
a subject tag.

"Abort what" would be the question. So, better explain.

The new version 2.0 of the Red Hat Cluster Suite is not compatible with
the currently installed one. Upgrading these packages without stopping
- the complete cluster can cause filesystem corruption on shared storage
+ the complete cluster can cause file system corruption on shared storage
devices.

Most packages (including D-I) standardized on "file system".

It would have to be something like:

This package is part of the Red Hat Cluster Suite, a complete
high-availability solution.

(stitched together from a redhat.com blurb), but this is a bit
inadequate, so I haven't included it in my patch.

This boils down to "It consists of (a), which does foo, bar and baz.
P.S.: there's also a (b)." It's simpler to explain (b) first:

CMAN is a symmetric general-purpose cluster manager. It provides a
service manager that handles service groups, plus a connection manager
that handles cluster membership management, messaging among the
cluster nodes, event notification, quorum and state transitions.

I don't quite follow the foo-bar-baz bit, though. It seems to be:

a connection manager that handles
- cluster membership management,
- messaging among the cluster nodes,
- event notification,
- quorum
and
- state transitions.

But what does it mean to say that it "handles [...] quorum"?

It's mildly informal; try "the cluster manager itself"?

RHCS isn't Section: devel, so it would be good if it could avoid
this jargon - only dogs and programmers do things against trees.
Unfortunately I'm not confident I can translate "compiling an
out-of-tree module against a source tree" into English...

Then some other package descriptions have odd glitches:

In case you don't read blogs, that one made my day. Please just
imagine myself alone hacking at 07:00am in my daily train to work and
suddenly laughing out loud and looking silly to other train

We should some day invent an en_US@geek locale...

Otherwise, as usual, all suggestions adopted (unless I forgot some: I
usually apply changes manually).

Hi!

First of all thanks for bringing this up, the package indeed needs i
this kind of review.

RHCS is a cluster management infrastructure, which allows to build
highly available N-node clusters with services and IP takeover on top
of shared FC/iSCSI storage devices.

something like that?

rgmanager handles service groups, not cman.

Or:
RHCS is a cluster management infrastructure, for building
high-availability N-node clusters with service and IP takeover on
top of shared FC/iSCSI storage devices.

I'd also suggest s/N-node/multi-node/ (I assume it's always N>1!)
and s/takeover/failover/, but that may be me missing technical
subtleties. Given that this is Red Hat we could throw in an
"enterprise grade" at the start.

"FC" should perhaps be "Fibre Channel", given the existence of
Fedora Core. The redhat.com hardware requirements say that RHCS can
also use Multi-Initiator Serial Attached SCSI (MI SAS, a new one on
me). Could we get away with replacing "FC/iSCSI storage devices"
with something more generic like "Storage Area Network hardware"?

So the (lib)cman boilerplate should be just:

CMAN is a symmetric general-purpose cluster manager. It provides a
connection manager that handles cluster membership management,
messaging among the cluster nodes, event notification, quorum and
state transitions.

Can you confirm that it "handles [...] quorum", whatever that is?

At present rgmanager has:

Resource Group Manager provides high availability of critical server
applications in the event of planned or unplanned system downtime.

Would that be improved by a transplanted reference to service groups?

(Holding off on amended patches for now)
