Does anyone know if this is an expected behavior?  It's okay if it is, this was just the first time I've seen (and tested) that screen when testing upgrades in Fedora 11.  I wanted to be sure before we release.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2009-05-20 10:20:21 EDT
You should only be offered this screen if you have ext4migrate on the command line.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2009-05-20 10:51:20 EDT
This will be fixed in anaconda-, should we build that for F11.
Comment 4 James Laska 2009-05-20 11:01:54 EDT
I think so, it's a screen that isn't intended for general consumption and hasn't received focused testing.  My sense is having this the default behavior should be held off until post-F11.

Jesse, your thoughts from a rel-eng perspective?
Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2009-05-20 13:52:48 EDT
I agree, this should only show up with the cli argument.
Comment 6 James Laska 2009-05-29 10:56:07 EDT
Confirmed fix in anaconda-
