Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 891576
"Reclaim space" somewhat bogus when custom partitioning has been selected
Last modified: 2013-02-02 04:14:43 EST
Description of problem:
The button to start custom partitioning is labelled "Reclaim space". That's not what it does. Mildly confusing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Partition scheme "Standard Partition" (for bug report completeness; I don't think it matters)
2. Check the box labelled "I don't need help; let me customize disk partitioning"
The only active button is labelled "Reclaim space"
Pressing the button isn't going to reclaim anything. It'll let me partition the disk, which may or may not involve me reclaiming disk space. Therefore, I'd expect the button to be labelled differently.
We can't change this for F18, but we can change it for rawhide.
Markus, this is a great point - we're going to redesign the screen to fix this. We had a discussion about it in IRC today, and our intern Stephanie is going to be working on mockups for the fix this afternoon. She will post them to the bug probably tomorrow. I'd like to get your feedback on the mockups then.
We may want to consider this a dupe of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=903501 . If not, at least, see the discussion there, as Major Changes to this dialog are being planned in that bug.

Máirín, I'd like to thank you for comment#2. It's to the point, and it radiates zeal. Bug care like this makes bug reporters come back for more. Exemplary!
I had a look at the latest mockups on bug 903501, and they're a clear improvement.
