---------------------------------------

Todd, should we run test-patch before committing changes? My preference is to do that.

> In an HA cluster, when there are two NNs, the invariant that only one NN is active at
a time has to be preserved in order to prevent "split brain syndrome." Thus, when a standby
NN is transition to "active" state during a failover, it needs to somehow _fence_ the formerly
active NN to ensure that it can no longer perform edits. This JIRA is to discuss and implement
NN fencing.
