I've not had time to review this yet, but yesterday I added support in
partman-auto-lvm for preseeding the disk. This also required a small
change in partman-auto.
I suggest you also prepare p-a-c for preseeding. We can make the change
needed in partman-auto when p-a-c moves to trunk.
See commits 38428+38434 for p-a-l and 38427 for partman-auto for the
changes I made to make p-a-l preseedable.
I'll take a look...
As for including p-a-c in Beta 3, I'd prefer not to for the following
- I am hessitant to have another shared code reorg so shortly before
release, but think it should be done before uploading
- I'd like to see a resolution of the LVM/swap question before releasing
- adding yet another option in the partman-auto menu for each disk will
probably crowd the Manual partitioning option off the first screen and
that's too important for that to happen too often
- I feel it is a good idea to first have more experienced users try crypto
"manually" and getting feedback on it before making it too accessible for
less experienced people
Sounds reasonable, I've got no objections to that approach, hopefully it can
be included after Beta3 but before RC1.
