> With OAK-759 we have introduced replica support in MongoMK. I think we still need to
address the resilience for failover from primary to secoandary:
> Consider a case where Oak writes to the primary. Replication to secondary is ongoing.
During that period the primary goes down and the secondary becomes primary. There could be
some "half-replicated" MVCC revisions, which need to be either discarded or be ignored after
the failover.
> This might not be an issue if there is only one shard, as the commit root is written
last (and replicated last)
> But with 2 shards the the replication state of these 2 shards could be inconsistent.
Oak needs to handle such a situation without falling over.
> If we can detect a Mongo failover we could query Mongo which revisions are fully replicated
to the new primary and discard the potentially half-replicated revisions.
