Hi Nikolov,

> Hello List,

Most of the tests are from gluster's regression tests. Happy to discuss how
we can enable this further. I am not aware of an option to disable acl, but
will check and if I find something, will respond again.

> I got to know about of this issue, because you bought this up in two more
emails. Will make sure we have something in Gluster-7.3

Also, we are in this discussion/process of migration towards one place to
manage bugs and code, and thinking of migrating to github completely.
Hopefully after that, we as members of gluster community should be
responsible to triage issues properly.

> Thanks for reading this long post.
Thanks for writing long post, it summarizes the pain properly, so I hope
developers learn from this to build better tests when they implement a
feature/bug fix.
