This is the third release candidate for 8.3.10. 

We had a hard time to get all the rough edges fixed. But finally
our test suite no longer finds glitches. We consider the kernel
code to be frozen with this rc.

We take one more week to give interested parties (internal and
external) the chance to make sure that the new way of packaging
does not cause any griefs.

On some distros (sles10, sles11, sles11sp1 and rhel6) we will
have kernel-version independent drbd kernel modules. I.e.
You will no longer need to fetch/rebuild the DRBD kernel module
when you install the latest and greatest kernel upgrade from your 
distribution vendor.

Please note: This is a release candidate, not intended for production.
Please help with testing!
