Thanks Niels!
First thing we need to get going is to make other packaging infra to 
handle gluster upgrades. i.e. On upgrade glusterd needs to be restarted, 
first it needs to start with 'upgrade' option 'on' so that it starts 
re-generate the configuration files and dies, then 'glusterd' needs to 
be started again, normally. How do we get this done in other 
distributions if not done already?
