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.

It really seems like this is wrong for most of Fedora, but that individual
parts, such as Fedora GNOME or IoT, should be left to make the decision for
themselves, without affecting the rest.

At https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/SwapOnZRAM#Why_systemd_zram-generator.3F it says:

"Do not create swap partition/LV with default installations."
I don't understand if it is a description or a prescription :)I mean, can coexist swap partition/LV and zram?

Thanks in advance!
