Hi guys,

I was reading
http://hadoop.apache.org/zookeeper/docs/current/recipes.html#N102D0 and am
wondering if the instructions there are slightly wrong.

Step 3 of the first phase (creation of the znode) says:

"Watch for changes on "ELECTION/n_j", where j is the smallest sequence
number such that j < i and n_j is a znode in C;"

Wouldn't this cause the herd effect? Shouldn't this be:

"Watch for changes on "ELECTION/n_j", where j is the largest sequence number
such that j < i and n_j is a znode in C;"

Regards,
Ishaaq
