Hi Alasdair,

I was hoping you folks would at least rev the 2.6-unstable patchset for the
2.6.6 kernel that was recently released. Most of the 2.6.6-rc2-udm1 patchset
is included in 2.6.6. The 2.6.6-rc3 patchset is not included in the
2.6.6-rc2-udm1 patchset.

Evms has already been updated for the 2.6.6 release of the kernel. Can you
please advise me when the LVM2 snapshot patchset will be updated for this
latest released kernel version?

Will someone explain to me the pros and cons between using LVM2 and evms?
