[Gluster-users] Expanding with different OS/file system

we have a system consisting of 4 nodes, each running CentOS-5.5 and
raid10 on ext4, and using gluster 3.2.6.
Now we want to expand this system with a 5:th node, and my plan was to
use the same setup (5.5, raid10, ext4, 3.2.6). However, due to hardware
issues I can't install CentOS-5.5 on the new machine, and I'm wondering
of my options here.
1. Go for the lowest version of CentOS the new hardware can take, and
hope this isn't affected by the ext4-issue.
2. Should I opt for newer OS, like CentOS-6.3, and use xfs on the new
machine? That is, would it be an issue to have bricks using different
underlying file systems?
In both these cases I intend to use 3.2.6.
