+How to use use
+- Build and install the version of glusterfs with your changes. Make
+ sure the installed version is accessible from $PATH.
+- (optional) Set environment variables to specify location of
+ export directories and mount points. Unless you have special
+ requirements, the defaults should just work. The variables
+ themselves can be found at the top of tests/include.rc. All
+ of them can be overriden with environment variables.
+- Execute in the top level directory as root.
+- If some test cases fail, you can execute the failed test case script
+ directly bypassing At this time it might be
+ useful to set the envrionment variable DEBUG=1 before running
+ the individual test script directly by hand.
+- BE WARNED THAT THE TEST CASES DELETE /var/lib/glusterd/* !!!
