I think of the items this sounds the best. One of the issues we have
to make sure of is how gluster deals with lossy networks. Most of the
wlan filesystems assume that the networks will be rather stable and
fast which we do not have complete say over. The second item is how
does selinux and other items work on top of gluster?

I think we need to set up a test environment at say osuosl,
serverbeach, telia and bodhost and see how it handles traffic over
various items. I am not sure we are going to get it outside/inside of
RH with the current firewalls and needs.
