Description of problem:
Anaconda to enable LVM2 mirror configuration
As of FC5, only linear mapped LV can be configurable in anaconda.
Other mappings, especially mirror, needs to be configured.

I don't see how we could possibly add support for this, as it's going to be a
fairly major change with high risk of introducing new bugs. It's also going to
involve a lot of UI and translation changes which we try to avoid for update
releases. The correct way to do this is to get it on a bug list for F8 where we
can develop and test it, and then work it into the next major release of RHEL.

I only changed the kickstart part of the installation to activate mirroring.

installs. comments are *greatly* appreciated.

Same functionality, different way of coding
I changed some things in the code to reflect a discussion in the anaconda devel
In summary I created new classes and methods to implement the mirroring stuff
(as discussed in anaconda-devel). the updates.img that I used will be
This patch does not Obsolete my previous patch to anaconda. Its just a
different way of doing stuff:)
With the storage rewrite going strong all these patches no longer apply. This issue should be addressed for releases after f11.
So is there an actual plan to make this happen in >= f12?
Given that bug 512594 was closed WONTFIX, is there actual interest in making this work?
This would be a good thing to have in place since it looks like barrier support is being fixed in LVM upstream.
Its too late for f12, and there has not been a great effort to get this in. Patches accepted :)
