[Gluster-devel] Upgrade planning

Sorry Martin for missing out the mail earlier.

Generally in testing what I do is just install new glusterfs (1.4.xx) on
some temporary path. (the only problem comes if  you are using
mount.glusterfs, as it gets overwritten), and use glusterfs from temporary
path (and new ports, spec file) to run tests. Where as stable glusterfs will
be running in standard path. This works fine for me as i run every instance
from 'glusterfs', instead of relaying on mount.glusterfs and 'mount -t


Since I haven't gotten any response, perhaps I can word the
