Thanks for those who responded. The github lane and milestones for the
said features are updated, request those who mentioned issues being
tracked for 4.1 check that these are reflected in the project lane [1].

I have few requests as follows that if picked up would be a good thing
to achieve by 4.1, volunteers welcome!

- Issue #224: Improve SOS report plugin maintenance
  - https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/224

- Issue #259: Compilation warnings with gcc 7.x
  - https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/259

- Issue #411: Ensure python3 compatibility across code base
  - https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/411

- NFS Ganesha HA (storhaug)
  - Does this need an issue for Gluster releases to track? (maybe packaging)

I will close the call for features by Monday 26th Mar, 2018. Post this,
I would request that features that need to make it into 4.1 be raised as
exceptions to the devel and maintainers list for evaluation.
