I am happy to announce that clufter-0.56.0, a tool/library for
transforming/analyzing cluster configuration formats, has been
released and published (incl. signature using my 60BCBB4F5CD7F9EF key,
expiration of which was prolonged just a few days back so you may
want to consult key servers first):
or alternative (original) location:

A separate tarball containing the test suite is also available:
or alternatively:

Changelog highlights (also available as a tag message):
- this is a release delivering both bug fixes and enhancements
- bug fixes:
  . "assisted recovery" now works on systems without /dev/tty as well
    as on systems for which open-modify[open+close] (final close yet
    to come) of particular file won't reliably discover mtime change;
    now strict open-close-modify is used instead (and mtime check in
    a was-file-changed test is preceded with a file size comparison for
    good measure), making intermittent failures in test runs disappear
  . clufter is now capable of handling command options as unicode
    (relates to the usage as a library, original discovery thanks
    to pcs) and "the magic interpolation" of the command inputs now
    works at places where it was supposed to but unfortunately did not
  . ccs2pcs* commands no longer generate accidentally broken values
    of attributes marked as having an ID type in the schema
    [resolves: rhbz#1300050]
  . ccs2pcs* commands now translate notion of recovery/relocate recover
    policy of the resource group as supported by RGManager into the
    parallel expression in Pacemaker universe;  the same applies to
    __independent_subtree=2 at the resource level and empty restricted
    failover domain (that is referred to from existing resource group)
  . ccs2pcs* commands now propagate stop timeout of the vm original
    resource agent
  . *2pcscmd* commands now support group meta attributes properly
  . *2pcscmd* commands no longer emit bogus properties of the operations
    (id, name, interval) as these are position-fixed values in the
    respective pcs syntax, hence not requiring explicit key=value
- new behaviour and features:
  . help screens and man pages now specify where to report bugs
    (configurable at build time)
  . help screens and man pages for *2pcscmd* commands now warn
    againts using --tmp-cib '' (empty string) as it means resorting
    to shot-by-shot semantics, as opposed to accumulate-and-push
    (desirable), and this can lead to unexpected inconsistencies
- miscellaneous
  . run-tests helper script now offers better supports for nosetests
    as an alternative to unittest(2)
- and a bunch of minor fixes, sanitizations, etc. as usual

(rather than <https://github.com/jnpkrn/clufter>).

Happy clustering/high-availing :)
