At today's Gluster Community meeting it was decided — taking into
consideration the opinions expressed on the gluster-users and
gluster-devel mailing lists — that all bugs filed against end-of-life
versions of glusterfs will be simply closed. I.e. CLOSED/WONTFIX.
Bug submitters may reopen the bug if they believe the bug still exists
in a newer version, updating the bug to indicate the newer version which
the bug exists in.
