+Subject: ANNOUNCE: mdadm 3.2.4 - A tool for managing Soft RAID under Linux
+I am pleased to announce the availability of
+ mdadm version 3.2.4
+It is available at the usual places, now including github:
+ countrycode=xx.
+ http://www.${countrycode}
+and via git at
+ git://
+ git://
+This release is largely a bugfix release for the 3.2 series with many
+minor fixes with little or no impact.
+"--oneline" log of changes is below. Some notable ones are:
+ - --offroot argument to improve interactions between mdmon and initrd
+ - --prefer argument to select which /dev names to display in some
+ circumstances.
+ - relax restructions on when "--add" will be allowed
+ - Fix bug with adding write-intent-bitmap to active array
+ - Now defaults to "/run/mdadm" for storing run-time files.
+Upgrading is encouraged.
+The next mdadm release is expected to be 3.3 with a number of new
