The GlusterFS project will now have an independent
GlusterFS project board that includes members from Red Hat,
Facebook, Citrix and Eucalyptus. A key goal of the new board is to
help open up GlusterFS to the community and to innovation.
John Mark Walker, GlusterFS Community Manager, explained during
a webcast discussing the Gluster roadmap that Red Hat has increased
the number of developers working on Gluster. He add that Red Hat
has also accelerated the plans that Gluster had for themselves to
improve the product and their community relations.
