Okay, that is the reason why I now rebuilt git HEAD for version 8.2.7 -
after Lars said it was okay to do so (and after him telling me how to

The versions now in testing:

drbd-8.0.16-4 (EL 5 only)
drbd82-8.2.7.git_20090512-1 (EL 4 is at -2 due to a missing backup)

kmod-drbd-8.0.16-4 (and subpackages for kernel versions)
kmod-drbd82-8.2.7.git_20090512-1 (again, EL 4 is at -2)

I've tested the CentOS 5 versions and they are working fine (even with
8.0 on one side, 8.3.1 on the other), if someone again - or still -
wants to test for EL4, please do so. The drbd stuff is supposed to work,
it's more the packaging on EL4 which should be tested.

I'd like to move these packages into CentOS extras soon.
