Well, Cluster Suite is updated at the same time as the rest of RHEL, so
the redhat-release version is as valid for clustering as it is for the
operating system base ... ie not very!

You might have extra patches for some packages but not others. These
don't change the update version - only a full upgrade does that.

So, if you want a very rough idea of the version of clustering you have,
then redhat-release is as valid as it is for the rest of the system. But
I suspect that if you report a bug then GSS will want to know actual
package versions!
