Re: [gluster-internal] Keep or remove GlusterFS from EPEL-6?

I don't see that as an issue. We're selling RHS/RHSSA to people to build
server appliances.

Customers will have many different clients and they are free to get
bits to use from a variety of sources: 1) Fedora YUM repos, including
possibly EPEL, 2) gluster.org download site, 3) build from source.

I don't know, per se, how Red Hat Storage entitlements work, nor am I 
sure it's important for the sake of this discussion wrt where they 
get the bits for their clients.

AFAIK we will never put GlusterFS — client or server — into mainline 
RHEL. It will only be available as RHS/RHSSA with it's associated 
Red Hat Storage channel.

But again, don't confuse Red Hat with gluster.org. There will be bits for
both server-side and client-side—available from a variety of sources, not
limited to the Fedora YUM repos and gluster.org download site.
