The short version of this is that HekaFS used to be an independent set of 
features on top of glusterfs that are now moving into the core of glusterfs. 
That is a glusterfs community decision, not a fedora project per se.

When we update the gluster code in Fedora, we will get this change and the 
hekafs packages will be obsolete.

Do we really need to create a feature page for that and follow the approval 

Seems too heavy weight to me for effectively rebasing a package...
