Re: [yast-devel] Reusing volume groups in the new partition proposal

In the past people often complained about YaST deleting the home
partition or logical volume. Those people would expect the
proposal to reuse home and either delete and recreate or simply
format root and swap. Why those people don't make an update I
can only guess - bad experience with updates.

Then it's maybe worth to change the strategy from looking for a single large free blob that's later split into root/swap/home to looking for 3 closely matching blobs for root/swap/home (for example). This might ideally lead to reusing the corresponding existing volumes.
