+Reporting bugs against mdadm
+Before reporting bugs against mdadm, please read the README documents, as well
+as the FAQ in /usr/share/doc/mdadm . Most issues that are reported against the
+mdadm package are adequately answered therein.
+In particular, please do not file bugs about mdadm assembling arrays too
+early, e.g. when the driver is not yet ready and device nodes do not exist.
+Check FAQ item 27 about use of the rootdelay parameter instead.
+Also, please check out and make sure that the
+issue you are facing has not already been reported.
+If you are not sure that the answer you are seeking is in those files, or you
+are not sure that you are facing a genuine bug, please approach or with your
+Gathering information relevant to mdadm as root
+If you are not reporting bugs as root (which you should not), you will be
+prompted to give permission to run a script to collect relevant information
+from your system as the root user. Only the root user has access to some
+information that might be relevant to the bug report you are about to file.
+** Please give permission to run the script as root when asked momentarily.
+If you would rather obtain the same information manually, you can run
+ /usr/share/bug/mdadm/script 3>&1
+as root and include or attach the output.
