Hi Volker,

> Happy reviewing,
good job! i created an ebuild for the tool and checked it out, some notes:
- the button label 'Apply' in change dialogs is suggesting the action is to
be carried out instantly when it is really just put into the queue..
- the warning 'You are about to lose all data..' should come up only
onconfirming the whole action, not on every selection change.
- a partition of type unknown can not be moved/resized straight away, it
first has to have its filesystem changed in the properties.. can this be
- the visual partition bar is black and white except of the currently
selected partition. imho that is kind of eye-unfriendly.. maybe instead,
the colors could be dimmed (less saturation, lighter)?
- 'Apply pending operations' dialog is not wide enough to show full message
even though there's plenty of screen space
- the operations and jobs progress dialog is awesome ;)
- canceling operation deadlocks the whole process
- no ext4 support yet in parted :(
apart from these points, it looks really good!
regards marcel.
