There's a recent snapshot/rollback thread on the desktop list that relates to this.
LVM thin provisioning support is in the Fedora 20 installer (it fails to produce a
bootable system, the post-install fix for which is listed in Fedora 20 common bugs).
However, if OSTree is used, then there isn't a hard requirement on either LVM Thin
Provisioning or Btrfs.
I don't think that's accurate. OSTree doesn't touch /home from what I
remember. It is only concerned with /usr and to as minimal a degree
as possible /etc. People likely still want snapshot and rollback for
their actual _data_ as well.
