Under 'Basic mode of operation', I would be tempted to add a statement
along the lines of;
"As DRBD is a block device it is agnostic to the filesystem layer above
(if any). Moreover it will not in itself enable shared concurrent access
to a filesystem - for this a cluster filesystem like GFS or OCFS2 will
also be necessary."
It seems sensible to mention it explicitly and from the outset because it
appears some people are confused about or don't initially appreciate the
issue of coherency.
