Although I'm not really aware what all kind of work constitutes that a SysAdmin does, but I'll agree that with my limited Gluster experience and with other services on linux that I might have dealt with over the past years, I'm capable of taking on an infra related task that you may have to offer.

Cool.  I'll create a system (ssh) account for you on the gluster web
server, and send the steps I've been using for the MediaWiki upgrade. :)

What's your preferred username on the box?

Ahhh, that's right.  I was thinking it was C for some reason.  Bad
me. ;)

Cool.  Misc (Michael Scherer, CC'd) has been setting up an initial
Salt install, and should be able to give you access to the box there
for doing stuff with.  Misc, are you ok to intro Vipul to what's
needed to progress our Salt setup?
