I know both Daniel and Ted professionally. As a member of the largest
Linux filesystem group in the world, I am also privileged to work with
many other world-class filesystem experts. I also know the Gluster folks
quite well, and I can assure you that they have all the filesystem
expertise they need. They also have a *second* kind of expertise -
distributed systems - which is even more critical to this work and which
the vast majority of filesystem developers lack.  What Gluster needs is
not more filesystem experts but more *other kinds* of experts as well as
non-experts and resources.  The actions AB has mentioned are IMO exactly
those Gluster should be taking, and should be appreciated as such by any
knowledgeable observer.
