- Percentage of completion: 50%
Kickstart support is present in anaconda-17.3-1, including autopart. Interactive creation and editing of btrfs volumes is not implemented at this time.
Users should be able to create and edit btrfs volumes and subvolumes using either kickstart or the interactive user interface, including options to enable RAID features.
Automatic partitioning layout
- /boot (ext4 or btrfs) on a partition
- swap on a partition
- / and /home on subvolumes of a shared btrfs volume which uses the remaining space on selected disks
Benefit to Fedora
Ability for users to take advantage of advanced features of BTRFS.
