Description benscott 2012-11-26 21:55:38 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently the lvm2app library can create physical volumes
but the metadata area is fixed. Having the option to have
two or no areas and to adjust the size would be useful.
Data alignment would be nice too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

lvs --version
  LVM version:     2.02.98(2) (2012-10-15)
  Library version: 1.02.77 (2012-10-15)
  Driver version:  4.23.0

Thank you.
