Because I received notes that the CentOS Storage SIG packages from the
testing repository has been tested successfully, I submitted the request
to sync the repository (minus glusterfs itself) to the CentOS mirror
network. These requests are normally handled on Mondays, so the
configuration and pre-seeding should be in place beginning of next week.
Additional packages (glusterfs 5 GA) can then quickly land there as

In case someone is interested on the progress, you can follow
https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=15356 for this.

The next step on the CentOS Storage SIG side is to get the GA build on
the mirrors, and then update centos-release-gluster5 to use the right
repository (and disable -test). This package then needs to be proposed
for inclusion in CentOS Extras. When that is accepted/pushed, a release
announcement needs to be sent to the CentOS Announce list. Assistance
with composing the message is appreciated. The format should be similar
to previous CentOS announcements:
