It will be carried forward but a major change of features and
enhancements is worth doing a feature page to advertise the feature
improvements (see the gnome feature page as an example[1] ), it's
something for marketing to use and allows you to also detail things
like the removal or merge of HekaFS.

See above for feature page details. For deprecate HekaFS you add the
the appropriate obsoletes/provides as necessary to the gluster package
and follow the process for removing/obsoleteing a package in the wiki.

So that's something that can be documented in a feature page in the
wiki and updated as things progress through both the gluster devel
process and the fedora release process :)
