Dear QE Developers,

Does kpoints.x generate points within the irreducible Brillouin zone? If
so, why does the volume generated by the k points (as, for example, when
sampling a dense fcc mesh) not yield the typical "fcc Brillouin Zone
wedge", as exemplified by this image:
http://www.iue.tuwien.ac.at/phd/wessner/img438.png .

The same seems to be true for pwscf when plotting kpoints listed by setting
verbosity to high.

Sincere thanks,
