The centos-release-gluster312 can only be released once the repositories
are on the mirrors. If the package gets pushed into CentOS Extras before
that, users will get a YUM repository configuration that points to a
repository that does not exist yet.
Once the CentOS team (Brian Stinson) confirms that the mirroring is
configured/done in bug 13769, I'll ask to publish the release package.
With that, the announcement will get sent out as well.
Let me know if something is unclear, I'm happy to explain more about the
process. And of course, if others want to assist with pieces here and
there, get in touch too!
