Hello everyone,

At first, I thought LVM2 seems good because users probably get an idea 
that it's a new version,
something to replace the existing LVM, like IPaddr2 to IPaddr, it's not 
something co-existing/co-working
with LVM. But, some users may relate the version number ("2") with LVM2 
project itself.

As David said, LVM-activate can express its whole meaning - just to 
manage activation of logical volumes.
Well, I don't know, it's hard to choose :-/

Anyway, it's good idea to announce this new RAs and lvmlockd/systemid 
features in clusterlab user ML at some point.

I've asked our QA to schedule a testing on the RAs soon, and I also find 
some potential improvements to do
in my next pull request. Plus to the naming issue, I would appreciate 
any testing/pull-request for this RAs :)
