>> as you can read below Gluster 4.1 LTM release is available in CentOS.
>> We are currently using 3.12 in oVirt 4.2 but this release is going EOL
>> in 6 months.
>> I would suggest to move 4.3 / Master to Gluster 4.1 now. Any objection?
>> If no objection I will start pushing patches for it on Monday, July 16th.
> Gluster 4.1 has removed the gluster-gnfs package. We cannot move master
> to it until we fix the vdsm dependencies and provide a migration path for
> existing gluster-nfs users to nfs-ganesha.
Please track this in a bz.
