Re: [linux-lvm] Progress on LVM2 snapshots

Is there anything external people like us can do to speed up this? There
are many people waiting for this snapshot feature since it is so useful
and essential. frankly, i know there are plan to replace md with dm, but
since md is already stable and this snapshot is very unstable, why not
do this first? :P
