Re: Updating replication docs


Hi Daniel,

This means that the examples in the docu don't work, nor do the example given by http://dshrewsbury.blogspot.com/2011/03/simple-drizzle-replication-example.html and http://www.learningdrizzle.com/?p=97 because the slave plugin is multi-master which requires [masterN] headers in slave.cfg.  I was puzzled why slave wasn't working this morning, stopping Drizzle from starting with this cryptic error message: "what():  unknown option master-host", extremely cryptic because "master-host" is correct.  I had to look at the config filed used by slave tests to see that "[master1]" is now required.

Therefore, I'm going to rewrite docs/replication/*.

Thanks for taking on this task. My development skills far outweigh
my documentation/communication skills, so your work here is much
appreciated. And my time available to work on such stuff has seemed
to disappear into the ether...

Feel free to direct any questions you may have directly to me and
I'll try my best to answer them.
