Contributing to the Gluster community

Are you itching to send in patches and participate as a developer in the Gluster community? Here are a number of starting points for getting involved. We don't require a signed contributor license agreement or copyright assignment, but we do require a "signed-off-by" line on each code check-in.


  • Simplified Developer Workflow
    • A simpler and faster intro to developing with GlusterFS, than the doc below.
  • Developer Workflow - this tells you about our patch requirements, tools we use, and more. Required reading if you want to contribute code.

Compiling Gluster

  • Compiling RPMS - Step by step instructions for compiling Gluster RPMS
  • Building GlusterFS - How to compile Gluster from source code. Including instructions for Ubuntu.
