Ray,

We've been looking at adding support in gfs2 to interact with the
generic quota tools. This would also mean being able to use rpc.rquotad
to access nfs quotas. This is the bugzilla that tracks this feature:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=298561.

Until we get gfs2 quotas to synchronize with vfs' diskquotas interface,
the only way to query gfs2 quotas is through the gfs2_quota tool, I'm
afraid.


Cheers!
