For the 'mongo' shell documentation we need to make one change here: https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/method/db.dropDatabase/#db.dropDatabase
Right now the definition is 'db.dropDatabase(<option>)'. We should change this to clarify what <option> is, it can only be a write concern object. We should probably also link in documentation to what write concern is if users are visiting this page.
- From the shell code it looks like db.dropDatabase does not allow any parameters. So how does one specify majority write concern through the shell helper?
- Executing the dropDatabase command directly, without passing write concern seems to always result in a w:majority behaviour. In particular, Danny Hatcher performed these repro steps: "3 member replica set, fyncLocked 2 of the members, command hung on primary".
I am filing this ticket to request clarification on the behaviour of the dropDatabase command and shell helper and to have the documentation updated.
