Uncertain about this: The live ISOs use a squashfs image which contains a nested ext4 image. The change proposal does not intend to cause this nested ext4 to become btrfs. Is this a non-factor due to kickstarts not being modified by this proposal?

We should be okay, we're not changing anything about the kickstarts, only how Anaconda installs onto the user's system.

Ah, I forgot about the disk image variants of the desktop variants we make for ARM. Those would need fixing.

AFAICT, there are no releng work needed other than reviewing fedora-kickstarts, please correct me if I am wrong and reopen the ticket.

Thanks.
