This is delayed for the following reasons,
- Stability of mux regressions
  There have been a few cores last week and we at least need an analysis
of the same before branching. Mohit, Atin and myself have looked at the
same and will post a broader update later today or tomorrow.

NOTE: Branching is not being withheld for the above, as we would
backport the required fixes, and post branching there is work to do in
terms of cleaning up the branch (gfapi, versions etc.) that takes some time.

- Not having the Gluster 5.0 found in version in bugzilla
This issue has been resolved with the bugzilla team today, so it is no
longer a blocker.
