The reason we make the producers to produce to a fixed partition for each
metadata-refresh interval are the following:https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-1017https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-959
So in a word the randomness is still preserved but within one
metadata-refresh interval the assignment is fixed.
I agree that the document should be updated accordingly.
