This is pretty cool. :)

Ideally, we'd like you to chuck the source code up on the Gluster Forge:


Git can be a bit of a nightmare to get your head around though, so it _may_
be easier for you to use GitHub instead:


GitHub has a larger Community, and better user interface.  Still not completely
trivial to use though.

Either way works.  Try stuff out, and see how you go. :)

Regards and best wishes,
