It seems that this is not the case for all releases. Current releases do 
not have the dependency. There have been releases where glusterd (from 
glusterfs-server) would not start in case glusterfs-geo-replication was 
not installed.

Obviously the associated bug [1] that I filed for merging these two 
packages is now closed as NOTABUG, and the review request [2] for the 
modified .spec file has been abandoned.

In case glusterd has trouble starting without geo-replication installed, 
a new bug will need to be filed and we'll reconsider the merging of 
glusterfs-server and glusterfs-geo-replication again.

Sorry for the noise,
