Comment 14 Chris Murphy 2012-10-24 19:25:42 EDT
Immediately preceding this bug, is Bug 869842, in which the installer has incorrectly determined there is enough free space for automatic partitioning. So I cloned this bug to make that one, and I'm cross referencing since it seems they may be related.
Comment 15 Chris Murphy 2012-10-24 19:36:45 EDT
Propose as beta blocker, reason beta criterion 10: custom partitioning mode must be capable of destroying these partitions; and even if invalid the installer should not crash.
Comment 16 David Lehman 2012-10-25 10:52:02 EDT
This is caused by the same underlying problem as bug 866101, but it reveals a missing check.
Comment 17 Adam Williamson 2012-10-25 14:40:34 EDT
we're still fiddling with the criteria, but in general I'm broadly +1 to taking outright crashes for sane operations in custom part as blockers, so +1 blocker.
Comment 18 Adam Williamson 2012-10-29 14:57:56 EDT
Discussed at 2012-10-29 QA meeting acting as a blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting/2012-10-29/fedora-qa.2012-10-29-15.00.html . We agreed that since this seems to impact only specific btrfs configurations it's not broad enough in impact to constitute a blocker. Note that the criteria for partitioning are still in revision so we didn't strictly consider the bug WRT the criteria. We felt the conditions needed to hit this bug are likely to be fairly rare and there are obvious workarounds (remove the partitions with some other tool).

it is accepted as NTH, though, as it may affect testability of the Beta.

Proposing as a Final blocker under the more generous Final partitioning criterion.
