Addressing this from the CentOS point of view, in that lots of CentOS
users consume EPEL as well : We would be happy to bridge that gap and
host stuff like glusterfs directly in CentOS-Extras, which is setup and
enabled by default on all CentOS installs.

However, I am slightly concerned about this move. Glusterfs is a single
example : there are a lot of things that are shipped by Red Hat under
various variants and layered products that overlap with content hosted
in EPEL - including stuff like puppet, mongodb, lots of python-* and
ruby-* etc; so rather than single out glusterfs and drop it, please
clarify the policy.

My, as an outsider understanding, has been that components unsuiteable
for EPEL include exclusively content hosted at ftp.r.c under the OS/ dir
- I suspect this is the impression carried forward by many ( if not most
) people.
