i'm also looking forward to get the answer.
Right now, we are using 3.10 with nfs-ganesha HA.

Thank you

With the release of 3.12 ltm and now 3.13 stm, when 4.0 is released 3.10 is shown to be at eol;

4.0     Planned STM about 2018-01 4.1
4.1     Planned LTM about 2018-04 n+

What approach should a gluster consumer use today in setting up ha nfs on gluster? Is it still being recommended to use 3.10 with it's eol coming in what looks to be a matter of days/weeks? Perhaps the 3.10 support period will be extended for a reasonable amount of time until such time as storhaus in the 4 tree is ready to go and some kind of workable upgrade path is ready to get the HA portion upgraded from 3.10 to 4.x ? Since storhaug appears to be a sticking point for moving forward beyond 3.10 in the v3 tree, is it possible to bring nfs-ganesha back for ha use at least through the v3 tree or are all eyes on v4 and not looking back?
This is a good question and I'm also curious to learn the answer. More generally, going from release to EOL in just three months seems absolutely crazy to me, particularly as this project is owned by Red Hat who purport to maintain enterprise-grade support lifetimes. We should be talking about years, not months. As things stand today, I can't even deploy a new version before it's already EOL.
