Instead of asking whether I've read the thread, I'd appreciate if you could
try to understand the point I'm making so we can make some progress.

The gadget.yaml should represent accurately what goes into the image. Not
one image in fact, but multiple, one per volume, and all of their

We need to represent the "writable" partition in the gadget as well if it
is supposed to be in those images, otherwise how do we provide parameters
for it, and where does it go? Which position? And so on.

A lonely "size" parameter is not meaningful in that context without further
details. Then, how do we resize the boot partition, or any other one?
