Thank you for taking the time to select Gluster for your desired
workload and design a test to ascertain about functional completeness.

The documentation (I'm assuming this is from the Installation/Overview
section) focuses on what has been known to work because tests have
been completed. If you'd be able to provide more detail about the
tests you ran, we can consider improving the section of the
documentation using knowledge you share. If you'd prefer to send a
patch to the document section, that is welcome as well.
