Subject Re: Question about the two-phrase commit

If an operation is logged to disk on a minority of servers, then what happens on restart depends
on which server wins the leader election.  Since the new operation is on a minority, depending
on network conditions, a server that did *not* log the operation might win the leader election.
 In this case, the operation will be discarded.  If a server that *did* log the operation
wins the leader election (as would be the case in the absence of network or latency issues),
then the operation will be propagated to the remaining servers in the ensemble.
