Re: RFC: Btrfs snapshots feature for F13



Hi,

   > I'm not sure how much of this can/should be automated.

Sorry, not quite following -- what is the caution around automatically
creating a new snapshot before each yum transaction?  Why shouldn't it
be automated?

This feature would snapshot the btrfs / only, but that doesn't matter,
because snapshots don't do anything until the user chooses to initiate
a rollback.  The user who chooses a btrfs / and a jfs /usr knows what
happens when they rollback only the btrfs filesystem.  (And we can
print a warning to make sure of that if we decide it's necessary.)

Thanks,
