direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

I could get it to work. The problem was that the documentation made me
believe that I would need a initial synchronization between nodes.
I couldn't find a description of the stages of initialization of the
partition. I found plenty of Howtos with step by step approach but all
of them were describing the standard "two machines available"

I volunteer to add an image/description to the documentation. Any interest?
