Of course if the highlevel-tooling you are using already provides such a
wait-option that
waits for the cluster to settle after config-changes why not use it on
the last modification
(because it doesn't make sense to wait for the cluster to settle on an
interimistic config).
I didn't know that option of crm_resource before but thanks to Tomas I
'crm_resource --wait' is the way to go if you want to do something in
between the last
config change and waiting or if your highlevel-tooling doesn't support it.
