In section "2. Operations on a Red Hat Gluster Storage Pod in an OpenShift Environment" in the part covering the snapshot feature, add a point to the "IMPORTANT" note:

- Taking consistent snapshots of gluster-block based PVs is not possible

Also thre are a couple of spaces missing in the text body of the note.

Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:  
IMPORTANT
- After a snapshot is created, it must be accessed through the user-serviceable snapshots feature only. This can be used to copy the old versions of files into the required location.

- Reverting the volume to a snapshot state is not supported and should never be done as it might damage the consistency of the data.

- On a volume with snapshots, volume changing operations, such as volume expansion, must not be performed.

- Taking consistent snapshots of gluster-block based PVs is not possible
