The raidtools-0.90-6 rpm (and previous) installs its devices with different
permissions than the scsi and ide devices. I.e.
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 3, 0 May 5 1998 /dev/hda
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 3, 1 May 5 1998 /dev/hda1
brw------- 1 root root 9, 0 Feb 7 2000 /dev/md0
brw------- 1 root root 9, 1 Feb 7 2000 /dev/md1
So, whenever we want to back up an md device we have to go in and chown the
devices to be the same as the hd/sd disks (we do backups as a group disk
Please update the RPM to install the md devices with the same permissions
as the other devices on which one puts file systems. In a large
installation like ours, the current scheme is a hassle.

The md devices are being moved into the dev package. The permissions in the dev
package in Raw Hide (ftp://ftp.redhat.com//pub/rawhide/) are consistent.
