[Gluster-devel] Looking for Howto

I'm looking for a Howto document (or two): 

How to convert a simple pool of storage servers into a glusterfs pool?
(Suppose you've got a collection of data, which someone has stored on a 
bunch of storage servers, each with its own RAID. Now we want to unify
the namespace, and access all of the files through glusterfs.)

How to do that with "poor man's RAID-1" (suppose the storage servers come
in pairs, storing the same set of data on each side of the mirror, while
the access is read-only[!])?

(I *know* that the ideal way would be to start with an empty filesystem,
but with more than a dozen TB of data I cannot afford that right now.)


BTW, what's the state of 1.3.0? I know that there's a glusterfs-1.3.0-pre4.2
in qa-releases/, how does this relate to the current SVN? Would I be better
off building from SVN? Is the debian/ tree up-to-date enough to 
dpkg-buildpackage?

Cheers,
 Steffen
