I don't have a spare system at the moment to use as a testing platform.
Perhaps late in June.

However, I have been following the anaconda discussions closely,
particularly Upgrading from F9/F10 ICH9 RAID 1 systems.

It is my understanding that since ext4 will be the default fs for F11,
existing non-boot ext3 partitions are converted to ext4 as part of the
upgrade from F9/10 to F11. Whether there is an option given to the user,
I can't say at this point - probably not.

Since the upgraded system is different from the original F9/F10 starting
point (in many ways - ext4 is just one), any repeated testing (necessary
- because the first few trials will fail..) will require a restore of
the F9/F10 system before the next test.

I think it is only fair to the testers to make this point upfront before
they test the Upgrade.
