Yokozuna Active Anti-Entropy

You are correct in that the _yz_ed field (Entropy Data) is the key to AAE.
 Both KV and YZ build hashtrees for each partition in the ring.  Both trees
are indexed in real-time as writes come in.  Occasionally (default of 1
week) trees are rebuilt from scratch.  In the case of Yokozuna a Lucene
TermsEnum is used to iterate the _yz_ed field which contains the riak
bucket/key and the object hash [1].  During a hashtree exchange KV and YZ
compare the same partition.  If differences are found the KV object is read
and then fed back into the indexing process which a) indexes the data and
b) updates the entry in the hashtree.  Riak KV exchanges are a separate
thing.  I.e. there are exchanges that happen between different partitions
in KV, and then there are exchanges that happen between the same partitions
in KV and YZ.  The idea is that KV AAE will make sure the object replicas
agree and YZ AAE will make sure the indexes match the objects.  The idea
being that KV is the authoritative source of the data.
