Description Rolf Fokkens 2013-10-15 13:39:09 EDT
Please add bcache support to python-blivet, so users can build storage configurations the include 'bcached block' devices.

rebasing (missed f20 target)
Comment 2 Rolf Fokkens 2014-01-28 10:00:48 EST
dm-cache was not ready for F20:

But dm-cache is now progressing well:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/dm-devel/2014-January/msg00063.html

So if dm-cache is also ready for F21, we should consider:
- Are both bcache and dm-cache to be supported in Anaconda/python-blivet?
- If not, which one is the best choice?
Comment 3 Rolf Fokkens 2015-01-04 09:15:41 EST
Given the fact that serious changes on bcache are planned, I think this change should be postponed until further notice:
