Gluster Users,

This is to inform you that from the 4.0 release onward, packages for
CentOS 6 will not be built by the gluster community. This also means
that the CentOS SIG will not receive updates for 4.0 gluster packages.

Gluster release 3.12 and its predecessors will receive CentOS 6 updates
till Release 4.3 of gluster (which is slated around Dec, 2018).

The decision is due to the following,
- Glusterd2 which is golang based meets its dependencies on CentOS 7
only, and is not built on CentOS 6 (yet)

- Gluster community regression machines and runs are going to be CentOS
7 based going forward, and so determinism of quality on CentOS 7 would
be better than on CentOS 6

If you have questions, send to Amye Scavarda <amye at redhat.com>
