Just wanted to jump in here and start up a conversation based on this
bit, mainly in respect to the SAN features of Anaconda. While a
welcome change, I don't necessarily know that a large enough portion
of the user base is going to have the necessary hardware to really
test this so I was wondering what would be considered as a sufficient
test of these features by Anaconda standards and if we could offer up
some docs in the wiki for the test day on how to create a "scratch
file" (I've heard it called a multitude of things, but that seems to
be common verbage) such that it can be exported over iSCSI and offer
that functionality. We have a couple FibreChannel SANs here at the
office but I can't promise I can con my boss into letting me use one
of them for Fedora testing ;)

I know hardware is always a concern, but I just think "enterprise
class" storage solutions will be even more rare. Just a thought I
wanted to toss out there for discussion.
