I've been running into some problems with LVM thin provisioning in
CentOS 6.3.  Some of these I have reported to RH Bugzilla (e.g.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=883629).  The  upshot seems
to be that in RHEL 6.3 the features are "preview" but in 6.4 they are
"full featured/robust"  (hopefully) and many of the bugs are fixed.


This raises the following questions:


1) When will either CentOS 6.4 be available, OR selected features (e.g.
thin provisioning fixes) of RHEL 6.4 be available in CentOS  6.3?

2) Is there some way that I can help with the above?

3) Lastly, should I also file duplicate CentOS Bug Tracker
(http://bugs.centos.org/view_all_bug_page.php) tickets on these items?
