quoting from the other reply on @centos mailing list:
"Unlike Samba from default CentOS repository, which stays at a
particular version for a while, Storage SIG Samba is planned to have
latest possible stable versions packaged and shipped as and when they
are released upstream. Additionally it is aimed at maintaining
GlusterFS integration by shipping samba-vfs-glusterfs package with
specific VFS module for accessing GlusterFS volumes."
