      Description

      Currently partitions are assigned to consumers for consumption via a co-ordination algorithm by the consumers. This means there is effectively no master broker node, which is nice in a way, but makes the consumer logic complex to implement. It would be good to move the co-ordination to the brokers. This would make implementation of a consumer client much much easier, since only minimal zk interaction would be required. There are a number of details that would have to be worked out to finalize the protocol. Discussion is here:
