Since glusterd2 looks like it will be packaged separate from glusterfs
we can probably continue to build and distribute glusterfs for el6 from
the CentOS Storage SIG.

And if EPEL has a golang compiler we should be able to do scratch builds
of glusterd2 packages and distribute that via download.gluster.org.

I haven't tried any of this; it's mainly a thought experiment.
