As of now we don't check for build sanity on RHEL5/centos-5 distros.
I believe Gluster still has legacy support for these distros. Here we could
either add a glusterfs-devrpms script for el5 for every patch submission or
at worst have a nightly build to check the sanity of el5 build on mainline
branch to ensure we don't break further?
We'll be sending email(s) on gluster-devel about the patches which are not
compatible with centos-5/RHEL5 distribution and needs to be tweaked.
