Hi Alexandru,

I looked into pacemaker ++ and decided I didn't need take that route
for my (only) 2 node setup .
I've been hardening my 2 node pgpool, watchdog, floating ip master /
slave setup .
I plan on publishing my whole setup as a howto when done ( if my boss
give me go) , I'll keep you posted.

Be patient, this takes time, don't expect any howto on this until
august / september, mabye even october ( got a big release due in
sept. which I'm working hard to make sure our pgpool failover cluster
may serve) .

And please cc my mail directly when mailing me, since I filter all my
mailinglist mail, and came over your post here by accident :)
