[pve-devel] Install glusterfs-server as default

As explained in detail in bug 2293 [0] glusterfsscan is not working at the moment. Our function tries to contact a nfs server that is running inside gluster servers that does not respond.

There is a command line utility simply called 'gluster' [1] that can solve this problem in a single line:
'gluster --remote-host=<gluster_node> volume list'
Unfortunately, this utility is shipped in the package glusterfs-server which is not installed on PVE 6 as default.

I've now spent some hours looking for another solution but have not found anything simpler so far. Thus, I'd appreciate other ideas on this topic, especially regarding how much we want to avoid adding glusterfs-server.
