Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Yes, I did misunderstand.

Yes, we'll definitely upgrade our package to drbd-8.4.10 once linbit 
releases that tarball.

We'll probably continue with further DRBD8 upstream upgrades until 
Debian stretch becomes stable (with kernel 4.10 LTS) and all of the 
nodes we own or maintain are switched.
i.e. until late summer 2017 or longer.
