Happy Christmas!

It is time to have a release out that actually compiles on Linux-2.6.32,
and that is actually complete. This feature has neither important bug
fixes nor impressive new features. It is more a maintenance thing.

Since getting the RPM packaging right is a challenging task, here is 
a release candidate of 8.3.7.

Oh, there is one thing to notice: This is the first release that suggests
to use config-snipplets in /etc/drbd.d/.

Thanks for testing RPM-building and testing the update procedure!

8.3.7rc1 (api:86/proto:86-91)
 * Lots of fixes to the new RPM packaging
 * Lots of fixes to the autoconfig stuff
 * Fixed a regression in the resynch handshake code introduced before 8.3.3.
   That bug causes DRBD to block during the initial handshake when a partial
   resync is not possible but a full resync is necessary. Happens very rarely.
   (Bugz 260)
 * crm-fence-peer.sh is now also usable if DRBD is managed from the xen block
   helper script
 * Fixes to the init script's dependencies
 * Backported cleanups that where contributed to the in kernel DRBD
 * Allow online resizing of disconnected devices, new option to drbdsetup
   drbdsetup /dev/drbdX resize --assume-peer-has-space
 * Following Linux upstream changes 2.6.32 (SHASH and in_flight issues)
 * New /etc/drbd.conf example that suggests the use of /etc/drbd.d/xxx.res
