urgent RFH: please help test mdadm

I found a bit of time to package up mdadm, which fixes two
RC bugs, but I cannot test it. I've built unofficial packages for
i386 and amd64 and put them at


so please try them out if you can, otherwise I won't be able to
upload them soon, which might delay the lenny release.

mdadm ( unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release, created for Debian lenny:
    - fixes assembly of arrays that are being reshaped (closes: #512475)
    - this bug was also responsible for other assembly problems
      (closes: #498505, #499643, #496334)
    Again, many thanks to Neil Brown for being such an awesome upstream.

  * Documentation updates:
    - Actually install David Pashley's blog post added in, and
      register it with doc-base.
    - Update md.txt to version 2.6.26 (the lenny kernel).
    - Add a dump of a website detailing md superblock formats.
    - Register FAQ, md.txt, RAID5-vs-RAID10, README.recipes with doc-base
    - Cherry-picked UID/UUID typo in mdadm.conf(5) manpage fix (commit
      0e69da7) (closes: #506245).

  * Added Italian debconf translation; thanks Luca Monducci (closes: #506572).
