[Gluster-users] [Bug 1057645] ownership of diskimage changes during livemigration, livemigration with kvm/libvirt fails

This is rather odd - the Redhat specific clone of the bug we filed is
now marked private, even if I log in with my RH bugtracker account.
However, the original bug is still accessible:
There's not been any progress as far as I know. We are using the
workaround (which stops libvirt/qemu from doing the chown) in
production. With the release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I hope to be able to
use libgfapi on our setup.
Perhaps the fact that the RedHat specific bug is now private might mean
that they're actually doing something with it, but I wouldn't know.
Regards, Paul Boven.
