The master node processing changes to cluster state, and part of the processing is publishing the cluster state to other nodes. It does not wait for the cluster state to be processed on the other nodes before it moves on to the next cluster state processing job.

This is fine, we support out of order cluster state events using versioning, and nodes can handle those cases. It does lead though to non optimal API semantics. For example, when issuing cluster health, and waiting for green state, the master node will report back once the cluster is green based on its cluster state, but that mentioned "green" state might not have been received by all other nodes yet.

Add a discovery.zen.publish_timeout setting, and default it to 5s. This will give a best effort into making sure all nodes will process a cluster state within a window of time.
