I just want to point out that all contributors to the Gluster code base are "in the community." There is no such thing as a non-community contributor to the GlusterFS code base.

See above - this means that Red Hat employees are also included here. Even you :)

Not sure if I'm misunderstanding you, but the implication, as I interpreted it, was that somehow Red Hat contributors are not "in the community." I just want to point out that this is incorrect. If that was not your intent and I completely misunderstood, then my apologies :)

My 0.02 - a MAINTAINERS or CONTRIBUTORS file is a great idea. Niels, are you volunteering? :)
