Gluster blog stories provide high-level spotlights on our users all over the world
I’ve been afraid of RPM and package maintaining  for years, but thanks to Kaleb Keithley, I have finally made some RPM’s that weren’t generated from a high level tool. Now that I have the boilerplate done, it’s a relatively painless process!
If you want to make the RPM’s yourself, simply clone the puppet-gluster source, and run:
make rpm. If you’d rather download pre-built RPM’s, SRPM’S, or source tarballs, they are all being graciously hosted on download.gluster.org, thanks to John Mark Walker and the gluster.org community.
These RPM’s will install their contents into
/usr/share/puppet/modules/. They should work on Fedora or CentOS, but they do require a
puppet package to be installed. I hope to offer them in the future as part of a repository for easier consumption.
There are also RPM’s available for puppet-common, puppet-keepalived, puppet-puppet, puppet-shorewall, puppet-yum, and even puppetlabs-stdlib. These are the dependencies required to install the puppet-gluster module.
Please let me know if you find any issues with any of the packages, or if you have any recommendations for improvement! I’m new to packaging, so I probably made some mistakes.

Progress cannot be made without change. As technologists, we recognize this every day. Most of the time, these changes are iterative: progresssive additions of features to projects like Gluster. Sometimes those changes are small, and sometimes not. And that’s, of course, just talking about our project. But one of the...
