I agree in theory, _but_
- it doesn't seem appropriate to hijack the heartbeat mailing list for  
use by people not using heartbeat (ie. the openais guys)
- threats of censorship have been made in the past
- the heartbeat mailing list has already been shut down once because  
someone didn't like what they saw

nod, personally though it doesn't bother me so much.

Just take a guess.  If you send it here and it's more of a heartbeat  
question, we can just bounce it to the heartbeat list.
Generally speaking though, if it involves XML, then this is the right  
place :-)

Oh, and if you have a question about a specific component (eg. the  
lrmd is using a lot of CPU), try to use the list for the relevant  
project (http://clusterlabs.org/#Architecture)

crm_verify doesn't do a full simulation (because it doesn't always  
have the status section, I need to make it smarter at figuring out  
when it does), so it doesn't always catch everything.

try ptest instead... that will do exactly what the pengine process does

further back in the log... try grepping for "pengine.*WARN:"
