Re: [linux-lvm] Is LVM dead ?



Michael,

as mentioned on this list a couple of days ago, LVM 0.9 is going to be
released early november.
It will for eg. contain persistent and resizable snapshots.

If you have any feature enhancements, bug fixes or code to supply,
Please feel free to discuss them on this list.
