In a replica 3, what happens in case of bit-rot detection on a file ?
Is gluster smart enough to detect this and automatically heal the
corrupted files from other replicas ?
What if in case of replica 2 ? How do know know which is right,
server1 or server2, without a quorum ?

What if the underling FS (like ZFS) is retuning an error in case of
bit-rot ? ZFS should return an error if file is corrupted (and has not
RAID to recover from), thus gluster should see the file as
missing/corrupted and automatically trigger selfheal from other
replicas ?
