      Hi guys:

      I'am working on doing a big refactor for the documetations.it aims to

      • 1.make a better reading experiences and help users know more about zookeeper quickly,as good as other projects' doc(e.g redis,hbase).
      • 2.have less changes to diff with the original docs as far as possible.
      • 3.solve the problem when we have some new features or improvements,but cannot find a good place to doc it.


      The new catalog may looks kile this:

      • is new one added.
        • is the one to keep unchanged as far as possible.
          • is the one modified.

      1. write Zookeeper CLI[3.6], which includes the:
