Packages for the CentOS Storage SIG are now becomnig available in the
testing repository. Packages can be obtained (soon) with the following

  # yum --enablerepo=centos-gluster*-test update heketi

The update will show up for systems that have the repository files from
the centos-release-gluster{310,312,313} packages. Other repositories
will not receive any updates anymore.

I'd appreciate it if someone could do basic testing of the update. When
some feedback is provided, the package can be marked for release to the
CentOS mirrors.
