Actually I have no concrete reasons to switch to pcs. I had no problems
with crmsh and was pretty happy with it. I'm just curious how it will
continue with crmsh under debian. pcs seems to become a little more
common, at least on clusterlabs documentation. Sometimes also customers
ask for it because they think pcs is crmsh's successor.
