+Subject: ANNOUNCE: mdadm 3.2.5 - A tool for managing Soft RAID under Linux
+I am somewhat disappointed to have to announce the availability of
+ mdadm version 3.2.5
+It is available at the usual places, now including github:
+ countrycode=xx.
+ http://www.${countrycode}
+and via git at
+ git://
+ git://
+This release primarily fixes a serious regression in 3.2.4.
+This regression does *not* cause any risk to data. It simply
+means that adding a device with "--add" would sometime fail
+when it should not.
+The fix also includes a couple of minor fixes such as making
+the "--layout=preserve" option to "--grow" work again.
+A reminder that the default location for runtime files is now
+"/run/mdadm". If you compile this for a distro that does not
+have "/run", you will need to compile with an alternate setting for
+MAP_DIR. e.g.
+ make MAP_DIR=/var/run/mdadm
+ make MAP_DIR=/dev/.mdadm
