Description Ian Kelling 2015-08-31 02:01:10 EDT
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora using anaconda, and use a swap partition.

Actual results:
Line in /etc/fstab says:
/dev/mapper/fedora-swap swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

man fstab says:
"This field describes the mount point for the filesystem.  For swap partitions, this field should be specified as `none'."

Expected results:
fstab and man fstab are consistent. One or the other should change.
