[Gluster-users] Reducing a volume

Is this documented anywhere?  I'm in a position where this would be 
very useful.  I've posted a few queries about this as well and if the 
function exists, it's an anonymous one.

Last year, Amar responded that:
"If you are in testing/validating phase, 3.3.0qa15 should have this 
feature for you."

But there's no docs to point to how to do it. If the development docs 
could be made available as a wiki or something similar, we stunt-
testers could provide feedback, examples of gotchas and edge cases, 
and what works as expected that might have value.

Best wishes,
