People who respond on gluster-users do this already. Github issues is a
better tool to do this (Again IMHO). It is a bit easier to know what
questions are still open to be answered with github. Even after multiple
responses on gluster-users mail you won't be sure if it is answered or not,
so one has to go through the responses. Where as on github we can close it
once answered. So these kinds of things are the reason for asking this.

      I started being more active on github because of the user questions.
So may be different people take different paths to be more active on
github.com/gluster. Some people may not be as active on github even after
we wait for a long time just like in gluster-users so may be we should
start using it for questions sooner? Thoughts? It will only encourage more
developers to be active on github.
