Description Gene Czarcinski 2013-10-13 12:01:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently, specifying either --noformat or --useexisting results in both --noformat and --useexisting being passed as parameters which prevents their use for different purposes.

The intent is to use (with anaconda) --noformat on a subvol command to indicate just adding the entry to /etc/fstab and using --useexisting to cause the subvol to be destroyed and then (re) created [the equivalent of a "reformat"].

It would be nice if this was in Fedora 20 but I see that as hopeless.
