Re: [linux-lvm] dynamic lvm snapshots (auto-resize)



Hey guys,

I notice that the work for this has now been complete (bugzilla report # 427298 ). If anyone is interested I wrote a small how-to on using the automatic resize for snapshot LVs at http://dustymabe.com/2012/03/04/automatically-extend-lvm-snapshots/

I don't really know anything about the work being done.
