Name        : mdadm
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 3.2.6
Release     : 19.fc18
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. It fixes a couple of
minor bugs and finalizes the /usr move:

- Fix problem with IMSM metadata where resync progress would be lost if an array was stopped during ongoing expansion of a RAID1/5 volume.
- Rely on rpm macros to place files in correct directories, and match /usr move
- Cleanup .spec file handling of different Fedora versions
- Disallow creating a second IMSM RAID array size 0
- Disallow creating IMSM RAIDs that spans multiple controllers to avoid data corruption
- Assign mdmon to the systemd cgroup, if possible.
- Obsolete the mdadm-sysvinit package, as we no longer support booting using sysvinit scripts
- Remove the now obsolete mdmonitor-takeover.service, which causes problems as of mdadm-3.2.6
- Fix mdmon to leave udev cgroup properly, to avoid it getting killed when entering the real root.
- Fix problem where rebuild of IMSM RAID5 volume started in OROM, does not proceed in OS

All users of mdadm are advised to update
