Excellent point, and  fabulous constructive idea. I'll certainly participate.

It seems that QA test cases are somewhat different than real world deployments by the users at this list.

It may be more productive to have wiki pages where we, the users, describe with very much enough details (config files, hardware and network, workload profiles,
etc) how we are using glusterfs.

Then, the QA Team will have a good starting point to write their performance scripts and regression tests, for example.
Likely, some users will help running these scripts and regression tests over their hardware and network, collecting logs helping to improve stability and reliability.

How would these wiki pages be organized?
Could the QA Team create a skeleton of wiki pages tree to organize how we will write our deployment info and workload profiles in a format useful for them?

The stability and reliability issues are the blocking factors for a government size deployment we are evaluating. Performance for small files (1k to 20k) are "the second level" issue. But this affects alternatives too.
