Updates on the release and shout out for help is as follows,

RC0 Release packages for testing are available see the thread at [1]

These are the following activities that we need to complete for calling
the release as GA (with no major regressions i.e):

1. Release notes (Owner: release owner (myself), will send out an
initial version for review and to solicit inputs today)

2. Testing dashboard to maintain release health (new, thanks Nigel)
  - Dashboard at [2]
  - We already have 3 failures here as follows, needs attention from
appropriate *maintainers*,
	- Failed with core: ./tests/basic/afr/gfid-mismatch-resolution-with-cli.t
	- Failed with core: ./tests/bugs/snapshot/bug-1275616.t
	- Also test ./tests/bugs/glusterd/validating-server-quorum.t had to be
	- Failed with core: ./tests/basic/mgmt_v3-locks.t

3. Upgrade testing
  - Need *volunteers* to do the upgrade testing as stated in the 4.1
upgrade guide [3] to note any differences or changes to the same
  - Explicit call out on *disperse* volumes, as we continue to state
online upgrade is not possible, is this addressed and can this be tested
and the documentation improved around the same?

4. Performance testing/benchmarking
  - I would be using smallfile and FIO to baseline 3.12 and 4.1 and test
RC0 for any major regressions
  - If we already know of any please shout out so that we are aware of
the problems and upcoming fixes to the same

5. Major testing areas
  - Py3 support: Need *volunteers* here to test out the Py3 support
around changed python files, if there is not enough coverage in the
regression test suite for the same
