Odd thing is, there have been statements going back a year saying that
Gluster would be ready for VM hosting in the 3.3 version. On the one hand,
it's appreciated that Gluster is pursuing ambitious goals. On the other,
when a goal is dropped from a release that many people are waiting on a long
time, specifically because of that advertised goal, it would be common
courtesy (and good business practice) to announce the change in target in
all the places where it had previously been stated. Like this list.
