Can someone clarify the versioning system of DRBD. After reading 
Florians blog I am confident that 8.1 is the branch that is being preped 
for inclusion into Linux, but should I be using the 8.0.x branch or the 
8.2.x branch on my systems?

I am currently setting up and testing a new rollout so I have no issues 
with backwards compatibility. This is the first of our clusters that 
will be using DRBD.

We are using it with MySQL so I was particularly focused on the fact 
that MySQL had helped a lot with the development of the new network 
checksum feature in 8.2, but I thought that 8.2 was the development 
branch and 8.0 the stable branch.

Can someone clarify this for me?
