Description Adam Williamson 2012-10-26 21:52:45 UTC
The partition pokemons who are going to be using the custom partitioning screen are going to want to be able to specify which disk a given partition ends up on. This has been 'known' for a while but there doesn't appear to be a bug report for it, so here's one.

Proposing as NTH for Beta because it makes sense to have this thing available in Beta for testing; it wouldn't be great to put it in between Beta and Final so it only gets tested during Final validation if at all. It shouldn't affect our more sensitive testing paths as it's custom partitioning only.

I am testing a patch for this now.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2012-10-31 18:12:49 UTC
Discussed at 2012-10-31 NTH review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-10-31/f18beta-blocker-review-6.2012-10-31-16.00.log.txt . Accepted as NTH on the basis that this is commonly-requested functionality and it is an obvious benefit to have it included and testable in the Beta.

18.26 went stable. Closing. (Bodhi closing of bugs when updates go stable is currently broken).
