Re: Converting RAID5 to RAID6 and other shape changing in md/raid

Just wanted to say thanks for making such a great product! I just converted a 3-drive RAID-5 array to a 4-drive RAID-6 array, with exactly one simple command. The array is the root of my Linux system, and it didn't even hiccup as the conversion happened.

Really nice work.

Thanks, Mason
