Hi everybody,

The current resource agent repository [1] has been tagged to v3.9.1.
Tarballs are also available [2].

This is the very first release of the common resource agent repository.
It is a big milestone towards eliminating duplication of effort with the
goal of improving the overall quality and user experience. There is
still a long way to go but the first stone has been laid down.

Highlights for the LHA resource agents set:

- lxc, symlink: new resource agents
- db2: major rewrite and support for master/slave mode of operation
- exportfs: backup/restore of rmtab is back
- mysql: multiple improvements for master/slave and replication
- ocft: new tests for pgsql, postfix, and iscsi
- CTDB: minor bug fixes
- pgsql: improve configuration check and probe handling

Highlights for the rgmanager resource agents set:

- oracledb: use shutdown immediate
- tomcat5: fix generated XML
- nfsclient: fix client name mismatch
- halvm: fix mirror dev failure
- nfs: fix selinux integration

Several changes have been made to the build system and the spec file to
accommodate both projects´ needs. The most noticeable change is the
option to select "all", "linux-ha" or "rgmanager" resource agents at
configuration time, which will also set the default for the
spec file. Also several improvements have been made to correctly build
srpm/rpms on different distributions in different versions.

The full list of changes is available in the "ChangeLog" file for users,
and in an auto-generated git-to-changelog file called "ChangeLog.devel".

NOTE: About the 3.9.x version (particularly for linux-ha folks): This
version was chosen simply because the rgmanager set was already at
3.1.x. In order to make it easier for distribution, and to keep package
upgrades linear, we decided to bump the number higher than both
projects. There is no other special meaning associated with it.

Many thanks to everybody who helped with this release, in
particular to the numerous contributors. Without you, the release
would certainly not be possible.

PS: I am absolutely sure that URL [2] might give some people a fit, but
we are still working to get a common release area.
