Knowing nothing about multipath, I first read the multipath-tools commit message as “[0-9] → [a-z] only when user friendly names are enabled, [0-9] otherwise”, which I why I was wondering whether we were losing support in the non-user friendly names case; but that doesn't seem to be the case. > I also could have been more proactive at this; I'll update the > branches shortly -- there has been further changes to > partman-multipath and hw-detect to help with multipath support. Feel free to let me know once you've done so, since I've just uploaded hw-detect_1.123_source and partman-base_191_source. I suppose what's been just uploaded could be pushed to jessie, while what you'll be pushing in a moment would only be for stretch? > > > Apart from the disk-detect package, the partman-multipath package > > > is also affected by mpath naming change.

I meant it as: thanks to your reply to me in that other bug report, I know what packages I should be looking at, not as “please do more work for me”. Apologies for the confusion. KiBi.
