Hi all,

Pacemaker allows date/time-based rules for options (for example,
disabling stickiness outside business hours, or scheduling maintenance
mode ahead of time).

The date_spec CIB element allows specifying when the rule is in effect,
by years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds, etc.

It also currently allows "moon" to specify a phase of the moon (where 0
is a new moon and 7 is a full moon). This was a bit of fun that has
become something of a pain to maintain. If no one's actually using it,
I'd love to deprecate it in Pacemaker 2.1.6 and drop support in the

If anyone loves basing rules on the phase of the moon, now is the time
to speak up :)
