Hi all, I have finished mdadm 2.4.1-1 and would like some people to look at it before I upload it, since I made some significant changes (no more mdrun, for instance (but it's not yet deprecated until initramfs-tools syncs)). Here's the changelog: mdadm (2.4.1-1) experimental; urgency=low * The "I'll kill that maintainer... uh, wait, it's me" release. Sorry for the delay, here's the long awaited new upstream release, which closes: Bug#318230, Bug#321751, Bug#337903, Bug#352798, Bug#363592, Bug#356153, Bug#271033 Oh, and we're moving away from that arch nightmare too. Sorry for the confusion. * Experimental release, because I really don't want to be responsible for data loss. Though I am quite sure that the upgrade is painless, I also don't have access to an 18 drive RAID 10 with multipath on s390 or similar arrangements. * We now make the /dev/md* devices in postinst unless /dev/md15 exists (no longer checking for /dev/md0), or unless devfs is in use. If udev is used, /dev/md15 will only exist in complex setups, so the devices will be made in /dev/.static by MAKEDEV, which is not really a concern. I opted against unconditionally calling MAKEDEV until #367407 is fixed so as to preserve custom permissions or owner settings. This also acknowledges the NMU (#299623). closes: Bug#310247, Bug#299623 * Patched some of the code to make mdadm honour /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf over /etc/mdadm.conf (see NEWS). * /sbin/mdrun has been deprecated and replaced by calls to /sbin/mdadm; a proper deprecation warning is in place (see NEWS). * Fixed a couple of typos in the mdadm(8) manpage; thanks to Reuben Thomas. closes: Bug#345669, Bug#345667 * Updated Debconf translations: - Vietnamese by Clytie Siddall (closes: Bug#323950) - Czech by Miroslav Kure (closes: Bug#360290) - Russian by Yuri Kozlov (closes: Bug#361116) - French by Eric Madesclair (closes: Bug#323988) * Added new Debconf translations: - Swedish by Daniel Nylander (closes: Bug#333486) - Dutch by Frans Pop (closes: Bug#344714) You can download it from incoming.debian.org for the next 11 hours, then from experimental (after a little while): apt-get install -t experimental mdadm http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/mdadm/mdadm*2.4.1-1* Comments welcome. -- .''`. martin f. krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> : :' : proud Debian developer and author: http://debiansystem.info `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system the early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese in the trap.
