[Gluster-users] Feature Request: Lock Volume Settings

As discussed recently, it is way to easy to make destructive changes
to a volume,e.g change shard size. This can corrupt the data with no
warnings and its all to easy to make a typo or access the wrong volume
when doing 3am maintenance ...

So I'd like to suggest something like the following:

  gluster volume lock <volname>

Setting this would fail all:
- setting changes
- add bricks
- remove bricks
- delete volume

  gluster volume unlock <volname>

would allow all changes to be made.

Just a thought, open to alternate suggestions.
