FYI that document is quite dated, and the syntax is all wrong, but the
basic concepts are still valid. The more up-to-date documentation is:

I guess the first question is how you plan to use containers. Are you
planning on containerizing the cluster stack itself (corosync and
pacemaker), using containers as Pacemaker Remote nodes, or simply
launching containers that run resources?

If you plan to have non-containerized cluster nodes, and just want to
run resources inside containers, then bundles are your best bet:
