Yes, they overlap with a) layered products (RHGS, RHCS) that Red Hat ships
_on_ RHEL, and b) subsets of those layered products that ship _in_ RHEL;
i.e. selected Ceph libraries and GlusterFS client-side packages.

And I haven't even scratched the surface of modules in Fedora or EPEL.
Stephen Gallegher and I had some conversations a couple years ago when
Fedora modules were new about making GlusterFS modules, but the need then
for modules was unclear, and I've never looked any further into that.
