That doesn't seem to reflect reality. If you download the Server image right
now, and go with its automatic partitioning scheme generation, it'll give you
a swap partition on LVM. This is correct for most servers, not necessarily the
LVM part, but having swap on disk.
The proposal recommends changing this. Cloud and Server folks will
decide what's best for their use cases, not me.
It really seems like this is wrong for most of Fedora, but that
parts, such as Fedora GNOME or IoT, should be left to make the decision for
themselves, without affecting the rest.
Your opinion is noted. And now you don't have to keep repeating
yourself and swamping the list with extraneous emails that contribute
nothing new, correct? If you have some new insight, that's great.
