On build.gluster.org there now is a /usr/local/bin/get-hosts.py script
(needs to be executed through sude). This pulls down the DNS records
from our cloud.gluster.org domain in Rackspace and proves a /etc/hosts
formatted output.

/etc/hosts on build.gluster.org contains all the current entries. We
could automatically update it with a cron job or something, if needed.
New VMs should get added to /etc/hosts too, either manually or by
executing the script (sudo vim /etc/hosts, :r!/usr/local/bin/get-hosts.py).

Maybe, but I hope those issues stay masked when resolving the hostnames
is more stable. When we have the other servers up and running, we would
have a better understanding and options to investigate issues like this.
