I've tagged the dependencies and additional packages already in the
newly created storage7-gluster-40-testing tag. Because the tags is not
empty anymore, the CentOS team can setup the syncing of the packages to
the test repository. This has been requested in
https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=14363 .

In addition to that, a centos-release-gluster40 package is now prepared
as well:
  - https://github.com/CentOS-Storage-SIG/centos-release-gluster40
  - http://cbs.centos.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=291866

Once the repository is available at
https://buildlogs.centos.org/centos/7/storage/x86_64/ , the RPM from the
CBS can be used for testing. Note that there is no glusterfs-4.0 package
yet, we'll build that once the first Alpha release is tagged.
