This is a tracking bug for Change: OS Installer Support for LVM Thin Provisioning
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/InstallerLVMThinProvisioningSupport

LVM has introduced thin provisioning technology, which provides greatly improved snapshot functionality in addition to thin provisioning capability. This change will make it possible to configure thin provisioning during OS installation.

The only missing piece is a way to select a usage profile in anaconda. You specify metadata size and chunk size via kickstart. The bug to add profiles to lvm2 for common thinp usage patterns is bug 958464.
