Hi There,

I have installed MDADM on Mythbuntu and when I came to expand my RAID array I lost the array cause of a long-standing bug in MDADM that is shipped with ubuntu. Upgrading MDADM was straightforward (although not M$ windows simple) and expanding arrays now works... but I have already lost a tonne of data (300GB of ripped music - into the loft / attic I now must adventure in order to retrieve all my CDs and start ripping again).

So my question is, what is the process for fixes in the upsteam software to get incorporated and distributed via the ubuntu apt repositories?
How long does this normally take?

Thanks
Richard
