Addition of GlusterFS Port Maintainers


We are seeing significant interest and traction in GlusterFS working on more unix distributions.

To encourage this, we’re adding maintainers for the various ports so far. 🙂

We are glad to announce the following individuals, who have been chugging GlusterFS along on those distributions, have readily agreed to be port maintainers.

Please welcome:

1. Emmanuel Dreyfus as the maintainer for NetBSD

2. Harshavardhana and Dennis Schafroth for Mac OS X

3. Harshavardhana as the interim maintainer for FreeBSD

All port maintainers have commit access to the GlusterFS repository, and will manage patches in Gerrit that are necessary for keeping the ports functional.

We believe this effort will help keep releases on the various ports up to date. 🙂

Let us extend our co-operation to port maintainers and continue evolving a broad, vibrant community for GlusterFS!

    The initial rounds of conversation around the planning of content for release 8 has helped the project identify one key thing – the need to stagger out features and enhancements over multiple releases. Thus, while release 8 is unlikely to be feature heavy as previous releases, it will be the...
