[ClusterLabs] Antw: [EXT] no-quorum-policy=stop never executed, pacemaker stuck in election/integration, corosync running in "new membership" cycles with itself

I can't answer, but I doubt the usefulness of "no-quorum-policy=stop":
If nodes loose quorum, they try to stop all resources, but "remain" in the
cluster (will respond to network queries (if any arrive).
If one of those "stop"s fails, the other part of the cluster never knows.
So what can be done? Should the "other(left)" part of the cluster start
resources, assuming the "other(right)" part of the cluster had stopped
resources successfully?
