The bugs I mentioned in this email are now fixed:

I still have no good answer to how what automated testing we have right now
and what are the gaps for both glusterfind and geo-rep. I'd like to know
what is the current state of automated testing and what's the future
planned for both these bits of python code. Note, testing that python2 code
is compliant with python3 has tooling. The reverse has no tooling (Though
there's only 1y 4m left on the lock).
