Let me take the Outreachy part up.

There are 2 projects there, one relating to the documentation, for which 
Manikandan has filled in some links and thoughts. The other being the 
instrumentation tooling around performance.

For the latter, I would suggest that you get a gluster volume up and 
running, and attempt the GlusterBench.py [6] against it, and start with 
reporting the results. Again, Manikandan has covered getting gluster up 
and running. For any questions, or things that you get stuck on when 
running the bench script, post back here and we will help as needed.
