I am looking for a sponsor for my package "mdadm".
This upload is a fix for two trivial bugs opened against the current
mdadm package; the Debian-exclusive 'checkarray' script is excessively
verbose and this can lead to unwanted nuisance cron mail.
The upstream version is considerably ahead of what is currently in
Debian repositories, although the Debian VCS (git) version is more up to
date, but the Debian maintainer is not currently able to update the
repository and I do not feel qualified in pulling from upstream or the
Debian VCS, only in fixing these two nuisance issues which have been
reported against the current version.
I would like to push this package into stable after it has sat in
unstable & testing for a suitable soak period; Debian developer Philipp
Kern has indicated that this would be possible in regards to Debian bug
598957 <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=598957>, one of
the two problems fixed in this upload. The other fix is for Debian bug
605722 <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=605722>, which
is actual a partial regression of bug 510641
