I have already grabbed the latest release and started work on evms packages
for Debian, though I haven't touched them for over a week since I have been
away. I should have experimental packages ready within the next week or so.
I have been using LVM for some time, and I am eager to start working with
EVMS. Once I have working packages, I will be migrating some of my LVM
volumes to EVMS using them, which should be a good initial test.
I have not as yet built a kernel with the EVMS patch. I hope it is possible
to include both LVM and EVMS for migration purposes; is this true?
