[Gluster-users] Bug in log rotation for 3.3.1

If the gluster binaries accept SIGHUP and re-opens their logging fd's
on that signal,
then the current logrotate script doesn't seem too bad.
I'm guessing the logrotate stuff in the github repo is newer than the
3.3.1 packages from the download.gluster.org repo, as that is not the
version I have installed.

It's maybe not ideal that it will send SIGHUP to all instances of the
binaries, though, and not only the one instance managed by the service

In my experience, implementing a "/etc/init.d/$SERVICE reload" command
that handles the signal sending, and then having the logrotate script
call that works pretty well.
The service management script in /etc/init.d/ has a clearer way of the
PID file handling, and can probably pick out the correct instance of
glusterd and the others.

I could give this idea a whirl if there is any interest in using this approach.
