Drbd is a block device which is designed to build high availability
clusters by providing a virtual shared device which keeps disks in
nodes synchronised using TCP/IP. This simulates RAID 1 but avoiding
the use of uncommon hardware (shared SCSI buses or Fibre Channel).
It is currently limited to fail-over HA clusters.
This package contains the programs that will control the drbd kernel
module provided in the Linux kernel.

drbd-utils (8.9.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium

2015-12-29 - Apollon Oikonomopoulos <apoikos@debian.org>
drbd-utils (8.9.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release (closes: #808315)
+ Drop d/patches/fix-8.4-manpages, it has been merged upstream.
+ Refresh patches
* Ensure reproducible build.
* Remove DRBD service file and use initscript (closes: #787394, #633547).
Upstream is doing the same and the start logic is complicated enough to be
a bad fit for a systemd unit.

drbd-utils (8.9.2~rc1-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Build-Depend on docbook-xml to avoid fetching the docbook DTDs from the
internet (closes: #768881).
* Build-Depend on udev to avoid shipping a disabled rules file in case the
build system does not find udevadm or udevinfo.

* Refresh patches to reflect upstream directory moves.
* Bump standards to 3.9.6; no changes needed.
* d/copyright: update sys_queue.h location.

* Link drbddisk-8.4.8 manpage to drbddisk.8.
