Description Jan Synacek 2013-10-10 08:53:35 EDT
Description of problem:
LVMThinPoolDevice is an instance of LVMLogicalVolumeDevice. I don't think that it should be like that. Thin pools are probably somewhere in between a volume group and a logical volume, but I don't think they are logical volumes. What would be LVMThinLogicalVolume then?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a thin pool present on your system.
2. Run the following code snippet
  import blivet
  b = blivet.Blivet()
  tp = b.thinpools[0]
  print type(tp)
  # <class 'blivet.devices.LVMThinPoolDevice'>
  isinstance(tp, blivet.devices.LVMLogicalVolumeDevice)
  # True

Actual results:
LVMThinPoolDevice is an instance of LVMLogicalVolumeDevice

Expected results:
LVMThinPoolDevice is an instance of LVMVolumeGroupDevice? Not sure here.
Comment 1 David Lehman 2013-11-06 14:12:17 EST
Both thin pools and thin volumes are special types of logical volume, so their classes inherit from LVMLogicalVolumeDevice. If you want to check what type a device is you should either use its "type" attribute or you should check using isinstance but check more specific classes first.
