Quoting John Morris (firstname.lastname@example.org): > It is painful to overcome the learning curve of d-i, debconf and > partman, and just about any alternate means of achieving one's goals > should be considered. If hacking partman-auto and partman-auto-lvm is > really the only solution, here's what I did, in broad strokes: You know, a discussion I was having with Joey Hess at DebConf 13 had one of its conclusion as this: it is very sad that partman has indeed no more "real" maintainer. The framework is indeed fairly well robust as it is in this state for several years and, still, things are mostly working (except when I break everything by committing an unchecked patch)....and even allowed some people to plumb in their own pet filesystem. But, still, the overall code is mostly unchanged and we have tons of interesting suggestions piling up in the BTS.....but remaining as they are: interesting suggestions...:-) We would definitely welcome someone ready to invest some time (preferrably in the long term) to enhance the parts that could be enchanced. Really. But, at the moment, there is nobody who stepped in for this.... There is some learning curve as you mentioned but, after all, it is not that huge and all this requires some good understanding of shell-script programming (and everything related to partitions and filesystems of course).
