Wouldn't it make sense to get GFS tested in RHEL4's beta programme,
too, independent of the later product packaging?

At least the currently shipped RHEL4 kernel rpm needs patching to
allow for GFS' hooks (the cluster-wide-lock patches are required).

It would be nice to see GFS in beta2 or perhaps in its own right under
a layered beta (even w/o configuration GUIs)?
