Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

OpenAIS / Corosync is more than 10 times the code in Heartbeat's  
communication layer, and it will likely take more than the relatively  
short amount of time that OpenAIS has been in real production to get  
it where Heartbeat is after more than 10 years and 100K servers in  

It's worth noting that the author of Pacemaker may have personal  
reasons for recommending OpenAIS - his advocacy and adoption of  
OpenAIS helped him to help change employers.
