Yes guys,
there is no partimage ready for use in fedora - so there is no review.

I was in a situation where I had to boot from a usb stick in order to make an image of a notebooks HD, so I decided to use the really really well done USB creator <http://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator> (on windows) to get fedora on the stick and make it bootable.
And then the shock: No partimage.
Not even when using yum install partimage.
I then took some research within my local fedora installation - it's not in the official fedora repos - it's not even in livna.
Why da hell is this?

Now - I remembered that there is this package wishlist thing and found it on <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/WishList> . But there comes the next shock. I can submit my wish only if I am willing to become a package maintainer or if I already be a maintainer.
But hallooooo, hey?!
I just want to tell the maintainers - hey look - you 've seem to forgotten to take partimage in.
It's not possible - at least not at this place.

Very bad thing - it's kinda hard to communicate user ideas to the self isolating elite developers this way... :(

Sad regards,
die nmi!
