[CentOS-devel] Storage SIG proposal

The bulk of the Ceph packaging is server side only. The main component
which creates the client dependencies is the librbd package, which can be
held in other repos alongside specific versions of Xen, Qemu, KVM etc. With
the RHEL-OSP/RHEV3.3-based code for qemu, there is explicit dynamic loading
of the library too so it doesn't need to be at build time either so that
might give more flexible around cloud repo code.
