I've noticed that puiterwijk and kevin have done builds recently of glusterfs.

It's unclear to me why anyone would do that. I don't mind really, but I want remind everyone that glusterfs was retired from EPEL when RHEL started to ship glusterfs client-side RPMs.

So this is not an EPEL issue, but a confusing name repository that is used by Fedora Infrastructure.

Tags epel7-infra

Due to policies set as lessons learned, packages used on the Fedora Infrastructure systems need to be built either by Red Hat or rebuilt on the Fedora koji system. So for the few systems which use glusterfs inside of Fedora Infrastructure, we rebuild the glusterfs packages and tag them for the internal repo. The name might have been less confusing as infra-el7 but at the time of naming it.. there was only so much time to figure out the colour of the bikeshed.

The correct place to get el7 rpms for RHEL and CentOS is from the CentOS

Storage SIG.

If I failed somehow to fully retire glusterfs from EPEL, please let me know so that I can clean up any remaining bits that I missed the first time around.
