I am inclined to drop the GD2 section for 'standalone' users. As the team
worked with goals of making GD2 invisible with containers (GCS) in mind.
So, should we call out any features of GD2 at all?
Anyways, as per my previous email on GCS release updates, we are planning
to have a container available with gd2 and glusterfs, which can be used by
people who are trying out options with GD2.

This work is still in progress, and we are treating it as a bug fix for
'brick-multiplex' usecase, which is mainly required in scaled volume number
usecase in container world. My guess is, we won't have much content to add
for glusterfs-6.0 at the moment.

Thanks, I was testing for few upgrade and different version clusters
support. With 4.1.6 and latest release-6.0 branch, things works fine. I
haven't done much of a load testing yet.
Requesting people to support in upgrade testing. From different volume
options, and different usecase scenarios.
