Hi all,

comparing these two changelog:

Ubuntu 10.04 beta 2: http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/lucid/beta2
Ubuntu 10.04 RC: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/1004overview

You have removed this bug from known issues:

Activating a RAID 1 array in degraded mode is reported to lead to RAID disks being reported as in sync when they are not, resulting in data loss. Since RAID 1 arrays will automatically be brought up in degraded mode when a member disk is unavailable, users with production software RAID 1 disks are advised not to upgrade to the 10.04 LTS Beta until this bug is resolved. (557429)

Looking at the bug page (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mdadm/+bug/557429 ), the bug is NOT FIXED yet! This could cause a data loss for users installing and using Ubuntu 10.04 RC.

Cheers for posting this. Was already happy when I read the release notes that the bug is finally gone in RC just to realize some minutes later it isn't.
