[Gluster-devel] Fedora (f18), revised packaging for glusterfs

Currently the glusterfs*-3.3.0 RPMs in Fedora 18 do not contain the UFO feature.

As I work on revising the Fedora RPM packaging for 3.3.x, my intention is to cons up a single .spec that produces glusterfs + UFO. I.e. UFO = swift + gluster plug-in. But the RPMs  that gluster.org released were a mix of *-3.3.0*, *-1.4.8*, and *-1.0.2* for glusterfs*, gluster-swift*, and gluster-swift-plugin. Kinda ugly IMO. 

I propose to produce a set of RPMs that are all glusterfs*-3.3.x*. If I did this right now, everything in f18 would be glusterfs*-3.3.0-4*, with swift-1.4.8. 

I expect when swift-1.4.9 comes out, we'd sit on it until we're ready to release 3.3.x+1. IOW if swift-1.4.9 came out next week, I would not respin 3.3.0-5 with it. I'd wait to spin 3.3.1-1 with our version of swift-1.4.9.

And in theory this eventually becomes the glusterfs.spec(.in) file in the gluster.org source.

Any comments?
