           Summary: GlusterFS can be improved  (clone for release-7)
           Product: GlusterFS
           Version: 7
            Status: NEW
         Component: core

This bug was initially created as a copy of Bug #1193929

I hope this bug is never fixed.

The upstream patch process requires that each patch have an associated bug ID
before it can be merged.  However, there is no requirement that the bug contain
any information or receive any kind of signoff before the patch can proceed. 
As a result, many of our developers have the habit of creating such
"placeholder" bugs every time they want to make a change, even if it's just a
random cleanup/idea and not an actual bug fix or requested/tracked feature
request.  Also, any patch with the dreaded "rfc" bug ID (which would be
appropriate for such changes) is unlikely to be reviewed.

This bug exists to satisfy our process requirement, without the additional
negatives of clogging up our triage/tracking processes and making it appear
that the code has more bugs (which would be bad) when in fact a developer had
more ideas (which is generally good).
