Dear parted developers,

When I encountered some bugs (or FAD's, because they come from parted itself)
in ansible's parted module  (see
https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues/63676), I came up with idea that
they could be solved very easily if parted had an option enabling "no commit"
mode, that is: only editing partition table on disk, without signaling the
kernel to update partition info.

Currently, parted script stops at the first command which fails on
ped_disk_commit_to_os(). My idea is: make commit_to_os optional
(alternatively: delay commit_to_os() call after last command in script, so
"failed to re-read the partition table" won't stop parted from executing all

What's your opinion about this? If you give me a green light, I'd dust off my
C writting skills and submit a patch for evaulation.

With kind regards,
Robert Osowiecki
