The flowchart describing evaluation of table-level replication options (at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/replication-rules-table-options.html ) has a logic problem: at the very bottom the flow-chart asserts that when replication-do-table or replication_wild-do-table options are present (match), the table update will be ignored. I believe this assertion is reversed.

How to repeat:
See https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/images/replication-filtering-tbl-rules.png , found at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/replication-rules-table-options.html. (section shown in http://powerslacker.com/images/replication-rules-error.png )

Suggested fix:
Reverse the 'yes' and 'no' arrows.

Hello Sterling Cox,

Thank you for the report and feedback!

Fixed in all versions of the Manual in mysqldoc revs 56558 & 56559 by removing the flowchart; the text should be authoritative.
