- Now that the cause of the failure is known to be a software failure,
  do we forget about this, or still pursue the plan to remove 1.0TB
  disks that are used nowhere else at the FSF?

- If not, do you recommend moving everything (but '/') on the 1.5TB

- About UUIDs, everything in fstab in using mdX, which I'd rather not
  mess with.
