My concern right now isn't so much about the configuration of these
technologies but with the fact that they don't seem to be maintained at all
right now and in various states of disarray.
In the regular Fedora world this isn't such a big deal I guess because a
desktop user is unlikely to use OCFS2 or GFS clustering or setup iScsi
shares but with the creation of the server SIG I'm wondering what the plans
are with regards to bringing this stuff back to life.
A Fedora for servers that lets these packages bit-rot like that doesn't
look very useful.
