Hi Renzo

I can confirm that Ubiquity in Focal does not provide any means to
create a software RAID setup.

Moreover, while it at least has some LVM ability, it does not provide
the ability to create an LVM setup across multiple disks.

Unfortunately, this is not going to happen for Focal it's WAY too late
to make feature requests, that should have been done early on in the
Renzo  could you please file a bug against 'ubiquity' requesting this
support be added into the desktop installer?
