The partition resizing code for anaconda is coming along pretty well and is looking like a pretty definite thing for Fedora 9 at this point. Need to rebase my patchset to a more current tree, implement a few more things and clean up a little bit of the UI. But, it's definitely demo-worthy at this point. So I'll just leave you with that as if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a movie is worth at least a million words ;)

I was really hoping that this would make it into Fedora 9 and not be dropped and the fast paced work that is going on so early in the release cycle leaves me hopeful. This has been my main stumbling block to adopt Fedora as manually resizing partitions with QtParted on a Knoppix CD before hand has proven unreliable. I just beg and plead that you incorporate NTFS resizing.

The infrastructure is all done quite generically to allow the implementation of other filesystems; it's just easiest for me to do all of the initial implementation with ext[23] because the tools are more "familiar". NTFS is definitely in the works, probably very shortly after the code initially makes it into the repo. The crux will of course then just be getting the testing
