I attended the Riak Workgroup yesterday in San Francisco.  First off, 
thanks to Basho for hosting the discussion.  My colleague and I both 
found it immensely useful.

Part of the discussion around partition size was about chosing a good 
ring_creation_size.  We learned that 64 is the default, and also that 
the default setting is "probably too small for production."  I quickly 
logged into my riak nodes to check our setting and was disappointed to 
see that the default setting is a "silent" default meaning the variable 
ring_creation_size does not appear in the app.config file at all.  We've 
installed the riak-1.1.2-1.el6.x86_64 RPM under CentOS6.

Can the maintainers of this RPM please make sure to include the 
ring_creation_size in the config?
