Github user StephanEwen commented on the issue:

    -1 sorry.
    This needs to go to the drawing board (FLIP or detailed JIRA discussion) before we consider
a change that is impacting the guarantees and failure mode so heavily.
    Some initial comments:
      - In proper HA, you need some service that "locks" the leader, otherwise you are vulnerable
to the "split brain" problem where a network partition makes multiple JobManagers work as
leaders, each with some TaskManagers.
      - In FLIP-6, we are introducing the `HighAvailabilityServices` to allow for multiple
levels of guarantees with different implementations. I can see that introducing a highly-available
but not split-brain-protected is interesting, but it should not replace any existing mode,
but be a new mode.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at infrastructure@apache.org or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
