Requesting RH AOS 3.2.0 acks
So there seems to be a lot of info on this thats contradicting. Here you have it slated for 3.3 release, but i believe the trello card with this says 3.4. Which one is true as that dictates things on when/how we can deployer v3 to our customers?

This feature is in 3.3. Which trello card are you looking at?
Seemingly I can no longer find the one I had a link to before... but if its slated for 3.3 thats good news!

We should clarify, the linked card in this BZ https://trello.com/c/CA20axj2 is to copy logs to an ES instance outside an openshift cluster. There additionally is https://trello.com/c/j9BAcanp which addresses sending logs to aggregators (e.g. splunk) other then ES which is targted for 3.4
Why are there docs at
If this feature is not available until 3.3? Are these docs to *replace* the destination, whereas the RFE is to add an *additional* destination? Are the docs a mistake?

For contrast, these are the instructions for using the ES Copy feature: https://github.com/openshift/origin-aggregated-logging/blob/master/deployer/README.md#have-fluentd-send-logs-to-another-elasticsearch
