    what I regularly do:
1) Create a snapshot (btrfs) of Brick
2) reassemble the snapshots into an new (Snapshot-) Gluster-Volume

When Reassembling the snapshots I have to remove all xattr's and 
Since btrfs is painfully slow in deleting, I would prefer an option to 
reuse the Content, wich should be valid for the new (Snapshot-)
