[erlang-questions] noob gen_leader question

I reran the gdict example and election record shows  as down.
Even though this is not the case, but simply  is not the
current leader.  There is no distinction made between node being down
and nodes that aren't elected leader in actual election record/tuple.

Also, what is buffered field in the election record definition?
