Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 3.2.3
Release     : 7.fc15
URL         : http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/raid/mdadm/
Summary     : The mdadm program controls Linux md devices (software RAID arrays)
Description :
The mdadm program is used to create, manage, and monitor Linux MD (software
RAID) devices.  As such, it provides similar functionality to the raidtools
package.  However, mdadm is a single program, and it can perform
almost all functions without a configuration file, though a configuration
file can be used to help with some common tasks.

Update Information:

This is an update to the mdadm package.

This update fixes a bug in the handling of raid arrays using a bitmap, preventing the automatic re-add to the array of a temporarily disconnected drive.

All users of mdadm RAIDs are encouraged to upgrade.
