Hi Jens,

Unfortunately, the "new" parted manual is NOT (yet) a replacement for the old one. Will not be for some time.

Since Parted 2.x, there is a plan to move big parts of the former content to the GNU Storage Guide. As such, core parts of the new manual now contain references to a non-existent GNU storage guide.

Parted documentation is a mess as it is. Yes, the old manual is not up-to-date, but nobody is perfect. It would get far worse (especially for the casual user) if the only complete manual was deleted just because it's not up-to-date.

I had the pleasure of developing a script for auto-creating aligned RAID volumes with GPT, md1.0, and LVM2 on top of each other. It was hard and confusing enough to get it done with the old guide available. Initial data gathering would've been a nightmare without it.

After reading more up-to-date docs it seems not much changed in the last 8
years (no more filesystems supported, ...)?
