Description Allon Mureinik 2014-01-23 08:54:09 UTC
Today, when we delete a disk it's deleted throughout all its snapshots, removing all "history" from, and potentially invalidating the existing snapshots.

Such behavior may be useful in some usecases, but may be problematic in others. Another useful approach (which should be made optional) would be to delete a disk "from now on" - removing the active layer, but preserving all older snapshots.

Definitely not for 3.5, but Sean - let's consider for 3.6/4.0.

Comment 3 Sean Cohen 2014-12-22 17:56:40 UTC
I am not sure it will make it into 3.6 priorities, suggest to review again for 4.0
