Over the last few weeks we have been working on getting the repositories
and related bits in place so that the Storage SIG is able to release
Gluster packages for general consumption. I am pleased to announce that
the majority of the requested versions are now available. Users can now
simple install Gluster on CentOS 6 and 7 with only these two commands:

  # yum install centos-release-gluster
  # yum install glusterfs-server

The centos-release-gluster package comes from CentOS Extras, and there
are two flavour of this package. centos-release-gluster37 is the default
that gets installed with the above commands, and provides a repository
with GlusterFS 37. In case GlusterFS 3.6 is needed, you can install the
centos-release-gluster36 package instead.

More details about the packages that the Gluster project provides in the
Storage SIG is available in the documentation:

The centos-release-gluster* repositories offer additional packages that
enhance the usability of Gluster itself. Users can request additional
tools and applications to be provided, just send us an email with your
suggestions. The current list of packages that is (planned to become)
available can be found here:

Gluster is the first project that provides packages through the Storage
SIG. Other projects are in the process to do so too. General information
about the SIG can be read in the wiki:
