I have been digging into the consistency guarantees provided by
ElasticSearch and I am a bit confused by looking at the code. It seems like
the only time we look at how many replicas the write succeeded on is prior
to issuing the write
So I want to ask a question which should hopefully have a clear answer.
- write consistency level is quorum
- replication type is sync
- a write is issued. it succeeds on primary but not on a quorum of all the
shards (primary shard & replicas). will this result in a failure response?
If yes, I would love to see some corroboration!
 related issue: definition of quorum in ES code is off. github issue
