I am glad you joined this discussion. I was expecting you to join earlier :)

IIUC, puppet-gluster uses glusterd to perform glusterfs deployments. I think it's
important to consider puppet given its acceptance.What are your thoughts on building
'glusterd' using puppet? 

The proposal mail describes the functions glusterd performs today. With that
as a reference could you elaborate on how we could use puppet to perform some
(or all) the functions of glusterd?
