Hello there,

I am editor in chief of leading Slovak IT news server DSL.sk and I am
preparing material for our future article about Linux LVM. We are
creating production data storage system and will report experience
with that.

What I am trying to find out right now is what is exact status of LVM
thin provisioning. There is warning in
that it is very much still in experimental state and not recommended
for production, but the text seems little outdated. So what is exact
status and what versions of kernel / tools are needed? (We are
currenly using Debian stable but with kernel, LVM and thin
provisioning tools from Debian testing, so kernel 3.13.10-1, lvm2
2.02.104(2) (2013-11-13) and thin-provisioning-tools 0.2.8-1.)
