Could someone please tell me what the deadline is for adding expanded
partman-btrfs functionality? My proposal is in a thread on
firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: "Re: btrfs subvolume naming
scheme". A résumé of the read is: add the volume-manager-like
subvolume setup, and hopefully also add btrfs-style raid1 profile
support, and also the question of whether Debian should follow Ubuntu
and openSUSE subvolume naming conventions or Fedora/CentOS/RHEL ones.
The upstream wiki advocates Fedora/CentOS/RHEL-style.
