Re: RFS: mdadm

I have uploaded a new version of mdadm which, on top of the previous fixes, also fixes the FTBS bug 625392 and bug 63380. I am therefore still/again seeking a sponsor for my NMU of package "mdadm".

This upload is a fix for two trivial bugs opened against the current mdadm package, as well as an FTBS in unstable and a small bug in the kernel version detection system that could prevent boot (on non-Debian systems).

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 <http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=510641>.
