Hi Siman,

I added a (somewhat long and over-imaginative) section to the FAQ on this
a while back:


It's not meant to be complete; it's just an explanation of the ideas.
Incidentally, GID and LID stand for "Global ID" and "Local ID" and
they are numbers used to identify cman messages, and that's not really
described in the faq.
