I assumed this was because glusterd links against some library that is 
contained in glusterfs-geo-replication. Upon further inspection, this 
does not seem to be the case. I think I have confused this packaging 
issue with a dependency that is introduced in the Red Hat Storage 
version of the packages. I'm currently checking why this was done, and 
if merging glusterfs-geo-replication in glusterfs-server is really 
needed, or not.
