[Gluster-devel] How can we prevent GlusterFS packaging installation/update issues in future?

Hey Pranith!

Thanks for putting this topic on my radar. Uncommunicated packaging
changes have indeed been a pain for non-RPM distributions on several
occasions. We should try to inform other packagers about required
changes in the packaging scripts or upgrade/installation process better.

My guess is that we need to announce packaging changes very clearly.
Maybe it makes sense to have a very low-traffic packaging at gluster.org
mailinglist where all packagers from all distributions are subscribed?

I've added all packagers that I could track on CC, and am interested in
their preferences and ideas.
