These are the same packages and repository. I've only extended the
description for people that are not familiar with using the packages
from the CentOS Storage SIG.

Rolling your own repos should never be needed. The repositories on the
buildlogs.centos.org server should be ready for consumption. Once the
centos-release-glusterXYZ package is installed, you can always enable
the centos-glusterXYZ-test repository on the YUM commandline:

  # yum --enablerepo=centos-gluster310-test install glusterfs-server

This only difficulty is with a new major release that does not exist on
the mirrors yet. This is why I provided the above centos-release-gluster
packages (disabled the stable repo, enabled -test).

I guess that could be done. At least sending out the request after
verifying that the packages are available would be good. The CentOS 6
builds for 3.12 only arrived in the testing repository this morning.
Maybe we should add a page on how to run manual tests in the CentOS wiki
under the Storage SIG area? It can then be linked in the emails we send
out with test requests.
