Hey folks,

Gluster test infrastructure needs a bit of attention. We have committed a
lot of code in the last couple of years, but we have not scaled our
infrastructure at the same rate. Lately, the signs have become alarming and
it calls for attention.

We have scheduled a hangout[1] to educate new Devs about
1. Current Gluster test framework - TAP, prove, include.rc.
2. Challenges
     a. Regression takes a lot of time to run
     b. We have so many non-deterministic tests
     c. Identifying cause  for test failure takes time
     d. NetBSD debugging knowledge in the community is scarce.
     e. DISTAF: Multinode testing is not integrated with regression yet.
     f. More types of tests to have: upgrade, performance, integration.
     g. unit tests

Note that agenda is mainly to showcase the current challenges through a
medium more informative than email/irc. It is not to discuss possible
solutions; that should be done over email on the gluster-devel mailing list.

Hence this hangout is scheduled keeping in view convenience of devs from
IST or around. We will have the session recorded for everyone to view at
their own convenience. Also we could do the same session for different time
