No, sorry, that is not what I meant. The next versions of RHEL and RHEV-H
will have new versions of the glusterfs packages. Those packages will be
based on glusterfs-3.7 and will be compatible with the community 3.7
release. The new version of RHGS-3.1 (Everglades) is scheduled to be
released later this (northern hemisphere) summer.

When it is included in the next RHEV-H images/media, I do not know. I
think RHEV provides relatively regular updates though (but if you are a
RHEV user, you probably track that closer than me).

For now, the op-version hacking way is most likely what you need.
