We're waiting for someone other than me to test the new packages at
least a little. Installing the packages and run something on top of a
Gluster volume is already sufficient, just describe a bit what was
tested. Once a confirmation is sent that it works for someone, we can
mark the packages for releasing to the mirrors.
Getting the (unsigned) RPMs is easy, run this on your test environment:
# yum --enablrepo=centos-gluster312-test update glusterfs
This does not restart the brick processes so I/O is not affected with
the installation. Make sure to restart the processes (or just reboot)
and do whatever validation you deem sufficient.
