Subject Re: What does ReadRepair exactly do?

Keep in mind, returning the older version is usually fine.  Just imagine
if your user clicked write 1 ms before, then the new version might be
returned.  If he gets the older version and refreshes the page, he gets
the newer version.  Same with an automated program as wellÅ .in general it
is okay to get the older or newer value.  If you are reading 2 rows
however instead of one, that may change.
