mdadm (3.3.2-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* use-tempnode-not-devnode.patch: change udev rules file to use $tempnode which works both on wheezy and jessie udev, instead of $devnode which only works in jessie. At this stage it is better to make rules file compatible with old version instead of adding versioned dependency. Should be removed for jessie+1.

+Subject: ANNOUNCE: mdadm 3.2.2 - A tool for managing Soft RAID under Linux
+
+I am pleased to announce the availability of
+ mdadm version 3.2.2
+
+It is available at the usual places:
+ countrycode=xx.
+ http://www.${countrycode}kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/raid/mdadm/
+and via git at
+ git://neil.brown.name/mdadm
+ http://neil.brown.name/git/mdadm
+
+This release is largely a stablising release for the 3.2 series.
+Many of the changes just fix bugs introduces in 3.2 or 3.2.1.
+
+There are some new features. They are:
+ - reshaping IMSM (Intel metadata) arrays is no longer 'experimental',
+ it should work properly and be largely compatible with IMSM drivers in
+ other platforms.
+ - --assume-clean can be used with --grow --size to avoid resyncing the
+ new part of the array. This is only support with very new kernels.
+ - RAID0 arrays can have chunksize which is not a power of 2. This has been
+ supported in the kernel for a while but is only now supprted by
+ mdadm.
+
+ - A new tool 'raid6check' is available which can check a RAID6 array,
+ or part of it, and report which device is most inconsistent with the
+ others if any stripe is inconsistent. This is still under development
+ and does not have a man page yet. If anyone tries it out and has any
+ questions or experience to report, they would be most welcome on
+ linux-raid@vger.kernel.org.
+
+Future releases in the 3.2 series will only be made if bugfixes are needed.
+The next release to add features is expected to be 3.3.
