[Gluster-users] GlusterFS 3.2.2 CentOS 6 client?

Ok, I figured out one piece, the NFS mount needs -o nfsvers=3, in EL6 the client defaults to nfs4, however it's supposed to try that, then version 3 and so on. That's not working for the Gluster NFS, it is working when NFS mounting one of my other NFSv3 servers (non Gluster).

mount -t nfs -o nfsvers=3 glustersrv-01:/scratch /scratch

The GlusterFS client may be my rebuild of the Gluster RPMs for EL6.

Is the Gluster team working on official 3.2.2 and later RPMs for EL6 (RHEL6, CentOS6, and others)?
