While I'm no saint either, Ceph package is out of date since November
last year and received only minor upgrades despite newer releases
availability. 2 weeks ago I asked Sebastien on #archlinux-devops why he
didn't upgrade it despite his activity with other packages to no avail.

This week I'm going to rebuild dependent packages to disable Ceph
support and then move Ceph itself to AUR.
