let me comments few parts of document:
sounds reasonable. I just hope that e.g. for size, there is option like max so it use e.g.
whole 4 disks for big data partition with some redundancy.
same here. Just maybe instead of cache fraction it would be better to have just size of
cache including max option to use whole SSD disk.
To be honest I do not like much this idea. It just make whole wizard more complex and I
think goal should be to provide easy way to setup partitioning as you want and some
additional concepts on top of it does not help. Helpers like all SSD or all rotational
disk for e.g. bcache or raid makes sense, but having additional setup of some pools makes
things a bit more complex.
I worry that this abstraction just confuse users. If user already knows "I want an 8
filesystem with RAID5 redundancy on 6 disks and snapshot support." then I think he
also wants to select technology. Only part where it makes sense is autoyast, but still I
think user wants to pick technology to use.
Manual Space Maker
yes, for sure. For me current space maker configuration never works well and having simple
way just to specify what I want delete sounds good for me.
and also following, I am not sure what it means additional proposal parameters. Like
adding it to guided setup? Then I would add there also manual space maker. Or something
