Update of bug #17295 (project gluster):

                  Status:                    None => Fixed                  
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #2:

all xlators are now in lower case.
xlators have been renamed as category/name. there is a top level category
directory and sub directory for actual xlator.

summary of categories and renaming done -

1. Transport category (xport)
   Brick -> xport/socket

2. Optimizers/performance booster category (steroid)
   getattr -> steroid/stat-prefetch

3. Storage/File system category (storage)
   Posix -> storage/posix

4. Schedulers category (sched)
   Cement -> sched/unify

filter xlator is under discussion for its design still. One proposal -


5. Filtering category (filter)

each of those will be seperate translators under the filter category. more
discussion to be done about chaining of multiple xlators of filter or group
them into one (and effect of both approaches) to be done.

since all translators so far are following the discipline of declaring all
functions  static there is no namespace issues (yet). 

all inner variable and function names are to be renamed by 
translator authors to follow the new naming convention
