My recommendation would be an LVM alioth project, w/ a svn or arch
(preferred) repository. I've kept track of lvm2 stuff in arch for a
number of years, it has worked well.
Patrick, it might even be worth all 4 of us maintaining all the LVM
related packages (throwing lvm10 in with the rest), since Tim uses
multipath-tools, and none of us care much for lvm10.
