soliciting comments on  http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=6820  ( which
deals with the partial component inclusion of glusterfs into the base
distro ). There are a couple of workarounds mentioned there, but none
seem perfect.

In an ideal world, it would be nice if Red Hat had their RHS gluster
rpms in line with the gluster rpms shipped in the base distro and we
could use those into CentOS-Extras.

the closest other practical option seems to be building gluster --with
server enabled, and shipping the extra rpms into CentOS-Extras; provided
the '--with server' is retained going forward, this would atleast mean
we have version sync between the client code in the distro and the
server code in CentOS Extras.

The option of just adding all the gluster code into the distro we ship,
server and client content included, seems very intrusive and might have
an impact on third party expectations.
