Hi All,

This is a follow up to the recent question on wiping.

Previous versions of OpenStack used 'lvm_type=default' to signify a
wipe. Current versions use 'volume_clear=zero' or

For current versions, 'zero' is a single pass and writes 0's; while
'shred' uses three passes of predetermined bit patterns.

When did the change occur from lvm_type to volume_clear?

Thanks in advance.
