Once we're past alpha and there's a compose with this change, I'll do
what I do best and try to blow it up. I have a good idea where the
edge cases might pop up.
You can test with it today if you want to, just add
to the kernel boot line of any recent F25 Server Alpha candidate install media.
If there ends up being a problem or even a concern, I see two
straightforward paths: a.) minimally up the max size, b.) punt to F25.
I think 15GiB is probably reasonable, since the whole DVD media is 1.8GiB; even
uncompressed and installing everything on the image, it's not likely to break
Any change beyond minimally upping the max size make this not a
and thus into punting territory in my opinion. But I think it's safe.
Agreed; if there's any serious issue with this, I'll pull it out of
consideration for F24.
And it's also not the last tweak. If some other changes can
F25/F26 then it does actually make sense to leave the extra space as
unpartitioned free space. Who knows, someone might want space that's
not LVM managed... maybe they want a dmcrypt volume directly on a
This came up during the meeting. The decision we came to was that the tooling
isn't currently available for this, so designing the defaults around that case
wasn't useful *right now*. (It can be handled with manual partitioning or manual
use of Cockpit after installation).
