In the gluster maintainers meeting last week, one of the topics touched
upon was, should we build CentOS6 client packages for 4.0?

The reasoning being, upgrading servers to 4.0 requires moving from
CentOS6 (for installations on this base OS version) to CentOS7 and then
moving to 4.0 bits on CentOS7.

The same across clients would be further tedious.

As a result (and based on glusterd2 not being a part of the client
packages), should we build and release CentOS6 client packages for 4.0
via the CentOS Storage SIG?

This does not mean we run regression tests using CentOS6 clients, like
we never ran using CentOS7 bits in our regressions till date.

Packaging team, thoughts? and what would it take to make it happen? If
agreed upon can it be done for RC0 itself?

Other, thoughts on the same.
