High Availability is the most complex feature we have in Kea. Its internal operation must be properly documented, so other engineers could have a fighting chance to understand what's going on under the hood.

This is more than explaining what specific methods do. Things to consider:

  • not only what the code does, by why specific approach was chosen?
  • what are design assumptions?

I finally finished the review. Apologies for it taking so long.

The text is good. Thanks for writing it up. I've fixed couple minor things.

Also wrote a section about comparison between Kea HA and ISC DHCP Failover.
After writing it, I had some doubts whether developer's guide is the best
place for it. Perhaps moving it to the User's Guide would be better?

Anyway, please pull and review. If you're ok with my changes, please
merge. If you think the comparison section is better suited in the user's
guide, feel free to move it.
