[Gluster-devel] glusterfs with existing data files

On the http://www.gluster.org/docs/index.php/Understanding_Unify_Translator
page it says;


"If one starts with an empty namespace export, but has data in storage
nodes, a 'find .>/dev/null' or 'ls -lR >/dev/null' should help to build
namespace in one shot. Even otherwise, namespace is built on demand when a
file is looked up for the first time."


Does this imply that I can build up a cluster of bricks using filesystems
that have pre-existing data AND be able to keep that data intact after the
cluster is configured?
