"Who is using GlusterFS" link is broken.

My earlier questions still stand.

Thank you,

Got r00t?

Subject: Can't call client volfile glusterfs
To: gluster-devel at nongnu.org

This works:
option volume-filename.glusterfs-a /etc/glusterfs/glusterfs-client.vol

This does not:
option volume-filename.glusterfs /etc/glusterfs/glusterfs-client.vol

When I use the second line, I get errors on the client about the
config file changing.
Any idea what might be causing this? I am using the latest 2.0git as
of August 10.

Also while looking through the code, I noticed that sometimes you guys
use dict_get_str() and sometimes you use dict_get() followed up by a
Is there a preferred/more efficient method or does it not matter?
After writing this, I see that in the case I am looking at
(server_protocol.c line 7676), it's a dict_get followed by a
gf_string2bool(). Is there a reason that dict_get_bool() does not
exist? Another thing I noticed is that in those same places there are
tests to see if the calls fail,
which they can only do in case if a bad config file (right?), but the
config file is checked for correctness by upon loading. That would
make those checks unnecessary, correct?

These questions are not meant to be critical; I am new to reading (and
modifying!) code and am unfamiliar with best-practices.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Got r00t?
