Description Adam Williamson 2015-04-06 17:52:53 UTC
This bug exists to track blocker/FE status for this anaconda change:


at present anaconda allows you to select, say, a single disk as an install target even if it's part of a multi-disk LVM VG or RAID set or btrfs volume.

The change prevents you doing that; if the disk is part of some kind of multi-disk thing it requires you to select all the related disks as 'targets' or none of them.

dlehman wanted this change to go into Beta for testing.

Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2015-04-06 17:53:58 UTC
Discussed at 2015-04-06 freeze exception review meeting: https://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2015-04-06/f22-blocker-review.2015-04-06-16.00.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception issue on the basis that if we want to do this at all it'd make sense to get it in Beta.

(personal note: I'm a bit worried about that and think this is a fairly large change which may have unexpected consequences, but if it does I suppose we can take it back out as it's only FE).
