Subject Re: Leader Latch recovery after suspended state
Date Mon, 10 Mar 2014 15:44:41 GMT
Sorry for being dense here, but my point is that: Suppose the leader latch does NOT setLeadership(false)
on receiving SUSPENDED, then what you mentioned below won't happen, right?

If the latch does’t set false then it is lying. When there is a network partition it is
impossible to know the state of the cluster. The only safe thing to do is assume that you
are no longer leader (no longer hold the lock, etc.).
