3.11 Retrospective

Thanks all who gave feedback! From the notes we got, you’d like to see us do better release testing, you want to continue to see a focus on performance for small files, gluster swift, monitoring. You like how we’re putting our release plans publicly on Github, and we’re planning on continuing that! You’d like to see the ways that a feature gets proposed be streamlined, and we’ll look to that in future releases. We’ll be doing retrospectives for every major release, watch for the next one for 3.12.
