Hi All,

CentOS board has approved the Storage SIG [2] and we are currently 
working on creating the required infrastructure for it [1].

If you are not aware about the CentOS Storage SIG, please read the 
proposal page [1].
//Deliverable of the SIG:/

The Storage SIG seeks to make it easy to deploy CentOS as a storage node 
for various distributed and traditional storage solutions. This would 
include streamlined packaging and deployment deliverables as well as the 
management, updating, patching, and maintenance frameworks for those who 
wish to participate. We will only work with open source, 
re-distributable software. However some of the code we want to build and 
ship might not be mainline accepted as yet, and would be clearly 
indicated as such.

Initially this SIG will deliver packages in the CentOS repositories for 
easy consumption and will then move on to broader, and more impactful, 
deployment and integration efforts. In tandem with efforts to make 
storage solutions easily deployable, this SIG will also work to maintain 
clear user documentation to help streamline adoption.

 From GlusterFS point of view, here is a list of probable software which 
may be useful for the GlusterFS community. /Need your feedback on which 
software should make in to the CentOS Storage SIG/. After getting 
feedback from community we will finalize the list and work on the 
packaging on these software.
