Found this while going through the online merge jira...
The comments were interesting and I as an user would agree to the fact that
supplying a patch is good and it's on me to decide whether I should use it
or not. The core committee obviously is pushing for 0.96 but given that we
have clusters running older versions, I feel this tool would have helped my
current case immensely. I am all for disabling a region and then doing a
merge. To shutdown the whole cluster and put things in maintenance mode is
something that I would love to avoid. On a side note, it will help me avoid
staying up all night :-)
I will give this patch a try and provide my feedback. Maybe it might help
some other folks out there.
