Package: partman
Severity: critical
Justification: causes serious data loss

I burned a D-I image for a friend (the latest weekly Debian CD as of Mar
12 15:12) and chose to play with it a bit to see if it was clearly
broken in some obvious way or likely okay for out purposes.

Once I had verified enough that I thought the build was fine (and It did
work for the install), I decided to try out the LVM option in the
"guided partitioning", since I had never done so before and I wanted to
see what how it would arrange the partitions.  The guided partitioning
page clearly states that you will have a chance to review and undo the
guided partitioning, and is correct for regular partitions, but LVM
occurs immeditely, it seems, and even gpart was unable to restore my
data.  I was able to salvage the python programs I had been working on,
but nothing else.

Since there is almost certainly a reason LVM gets applied immeditely,
most likely that cannot be changed, but I am of the opinion that the
diolog where you can select it should clearly state that the operation
cannot be undone and may well kill working installations.
