A quick note on this: we're delighted to have Facebook contributing their
work to the project overall.
The patent is unrelated to the decision to be able to contribute their
work, and Halo replication is currently experimental in 3.11. However, more
testing and users looking at this is always welcome.
Hope that helps, happy to clarify off list.
