In a mail were a user ask where to open a request for this (i.e., pro-actively
trying to do something to make it better), you just wrote:
"Proxmox tells you go suffer, that's what happens"

There's a lot to do. GlusterFS isn't currently the most popular nor feature
full choice in software defined storage, so if a user can't even bother to
open a short Bugzilla request to ensure tracking of it happens why anybody
should bother fixing it, testing it, and releasing it for free for him?
Also, If I choose to what work on next I probably won't remember a single user
list post a month ago, but triaging in the Bugzilla gives it a bigger chance to
make it visible. No, nothing prohibits us from doing it ourself, but, if that's
to much to ask then it's probably not really a pain to you anyway and makes it
low priority automatically.
