comment Downgrade Yosemite Release to Mavericks
If the question is about App Store, you can edit (at least) the subject line; make it distinctive. If you can, don't mix multiple questions where one already has an accepted answer. Incidentally I suspect that we'll soon find an answer about continued availability of Mavericks; certainly there were comparable questions about Mountain Lion after the release of 10.9.

comment Unable to Resize Partitions
Worth noting, if a user intends to shrink an LV then add an LV: apple.stackexchange.com/a/146296/8546 shows OS X 10.9.5 apparently failing to add an LV to an LVF. That type of addition was reportedly possible in February 2013 (before Mavericks) so there may be a regression.

comment How can I remove the launchpad?
Complementary to this answer: apple.stackexchange.com/a/146332/8546 – please note that removing Launchpad.app from OS X 10.9.5 does not remove Launchpad functionality.

comment How can I remove the launchpad?
As you don't use the app, please: why is its existence a concern? The app uses less than 1.5 MB space.

comment How can I rename a Logical Volume Group?
With pre-release 14A361c, a rename of an LVG succeeds without an unmount of its LV.

LVG not LVM; and careful to not confuse LVs with LVGs
