Subject typo in wiki

In the wiki - there is a statement that a partition must fit on a single
machine, while technically true, isn't it so that a partition must fit on a
single disk on that machine.

?

>A partition is basically a directory of log files.
>Each partition must fit entirely on one machine. So if you have only one
partition in your topic you >cannot scale your write rate or retention
beyond the capability of a single machine. If you have 1000 >partitions you
could potentially use 1000 machines.

thanks,
svante
