I think we should leave the Base glusterfs as it is (for fidelity's 
sake) and whoever wants to run a proper setup either:
1. exclude it in yum.conf and use the gluster.org repos for server and 
client (it's what some devs recommended me to do)
2. buy RHS

Building the server bits of it sounds very tempting, but you never know 
when stuff will stop building.
