I'm inclined to follow this advice and would indeed propose that the "atomic" partman-auto recipe is kept, however without a separate /usr partition (discussions on -devel and the current practice convinced me that a separate /usr is seomthing that probably belongs to the former century..:-) So, would it be OK for participants in this discussion is we, in the installer, just drop separate /usr but keep the atomic recipe (which is not the default choice, by the way)?
