Description Mike MacCana 2004-06-23 22:15:18 EDT
Description of problem:
According to dledford@redhat.com, raidtools is now deprecated - bugs
will only be fixed in mdadm, its replacement. Initscripts should use
mdadm in future. 

Why is this important? Well, I think I've just found a bug in raidstop...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Find a bug in raidtools
2.Visit bugzilla
Actual results:
initscripts is using a deprecated method to manage md devices

Expected results:
initscripts should use a supported method to manage md devices

Additional info:
If raidtools isn't deprecated, that's cool. But you might wanna tell
he package admin :^).

Added in 7.91-1, should be in RHEL 4. Won't be added in RHEL 3.
