TBH it wasn't made to run because there wasn't any tests there. There was
only one test which was very trivial, so there was not value add really.
But since we have more tests coming in now (over last weekend), we can try
and set it up now.

I am happy to continue from where I left off about the distaf Centos CI. I
will start working on this tomorrow evening through the weekend and update
you guys on Monday.

Also, to run distaf CentOS CI, we need to install gluster and setup the
backend xfs bricks (these two things are not taken care by distaf) before
starting the distaf run. I had thought making use of gdeploy for this
purpose. If you guys have any better solutions, please let me know.

PS: My ssh keys have changed, so I might need some help uploading the new
set of keys, If I can't find my old ssh keys.

Best Regards,
