Since Intel will not be making community releases for 2.5.4 or 2.x.0 
releases now, it seems the community will need to maintain some sort of 
patch list against these releases.  Especially stability, data 
corruption, and security patches.

I think this is important so if people are trying a Lustre community 
release they need to be aware of any bugs that might exist, and if 
they're addressed. If things are unstable, lustre will (re)gain a 
negative reputation as a file system you should not trust with real data.

I don't have any answers here, but would like to start a wider conversation.
