Yes, it does.  But we do have to draw the line somewhere; is there any
particular reason that 2.5.5 isn't an ok place to draw that line?  "9 of 10
days old and I've tested it extensively" sounds like exactly where we want
to be right now for a package as important as mdadm; "about to upload a new
upstream version of mdadm that hasn't been tested yet", much less so.
