[Gluster-users] Timestamp on replicated files and dirs

Hello Liam,

thank you for pointing to git and the short explanation. Please understand
that I, too, try to help you. I am currently in the state of investigating
your project. Generally it looks pretty promising, but you should not let your
project hang in a state where there is no working release available for
download. This seems to be the case currently, because all I did was
downloading your latest release, installing it on a testbed of 4 servers and
look what it does. The release tilts the timestamps, so you cannot use it in
production. It is no sign of a bad project to do releases more often. It only
shows people care. git is no replacement for that, a user cannot judge if a
current git does well or not, he only knows it is a _current_ state.
So if you point people with development background to git, that is ok. But be
prepared that average users know hardly more than download, ./configure; make;
make install
Please don't feel offended, it is really a nice project. Just try to look at
it as john-doe-user once in a while :-)
