Morten, et. al.,

I have tried to learn a lot about CTDB over the years, and have managed to 
forget most of it (this is why I typically write stuff down...helps me 

I spent a bit of time last week talking with active CTDB developers and I've 
started to rebuild my understanding of the inner workings of CTDB.

Based on what you have above, I have a couple of questions for you:

- When you say you made a Gluster volume exclusively for CTDB, you mean
   the recovery file.  Is that correct?
- What else (CTDB-related) are you storing in the Gluster volume you
   created for CTDB?

I ask, because my understanding is that the TDB files that CTDB manages are 
intended to be local only, and not shared.  If your configuration is 
otherwise, I'd be interested in knowing.
