There is very minimal documentation on how to setup storhaug available, if not totally absent. The GitHub page in fact is totally useless, and I found no mention of it in the gluster documentation, everything still points to the old method. At the same time the li commands to export the volumes like "gluster nfs-ganesha enable" and the corresponding vol set for the exports do not work anymore.

These are good points.

It is possible to use nfs-ganesha with 3.12 without the HA and 
integrated support. There's a copy of my blog at [1]. It's a bit dated 
but still useful.

Or you can stay on 3.10 if you really want the integrated support and 
upgrade to 3.12 later, when storhaug is finally ready.
