8) Q --- Hi, what is the default read quorum in java api? Can't find
it anywhere. (from TB123 via #riak)

    A --- The default is actually called "Quorum", which is calculated
based on your n_val. With the default n_val of 3, Quorum is going to
be 2 on a read. The code that handles this is here --->

9) Max Beutel contributed a small fix to the PHP Client.
