I thought my question was very specific: what did RedHat remove from
Anaconda to remove support for other journaling system except ext3
considering RHEL is based on Fedora?  You just kinda assume I didn't
do the due deligence to find on a search engine first.

Okay, let me state it again more clearl.  I'm looking for a way to
directly support other journaling file systems (not just ext3) in
Anaconda itself.  Just wondering if anyone has done it already.  If
not, I can do it myself, that's fine.
