Pardon me for intruding, here, but I hop this does not mean that you
will be ignoring the "classical" partitioning methods. LVM may be the
default but for many situations (non-server and laptops, notably) LVM
may not be the optimal solution.
No Richard, not at all.
Everything from the list proposed in my original post will be included.
LVM will receive more attention though - it is the default Fedora option
and it is very useful technology.
Thanks for all the hard work being put in on this.
